COVID-19 Resources

To be eligible to participate in Club activities, members must be fully vaccinated for COVID

Everyone 5 years and older are recommended to receive a primary series of a COVID-19 vaccine to be considered fully vaccinated.

For children 5 years through 17 years of age, a primary series consists of 2 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.  For persons 18 and older, a primary series consists of:

  • A 2-dose series of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or
  • A single-dose COVID-19 vaccine (Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine)

Members are not required at this time to receive a booster dosage, however we strongly recommend all members consider it to be optimally protected against COVID-19 and its variants.

If you don’t meet these requirements, regardless of your age, you are NOT fully vaccinated. Keep taking all precautions until you are fully vaccinated.

FAQ:

Questions are bound to come up.  Here is a link to a list of the most common questions and answers.

Q:  Why aren’t we allowing unvaccinated members to participate on water?

A:

  • To maximize safety of club members; CDC guidelines support fully vaccinated people interacting without masks or social distancing
  • Wasabi Helms have determined that social distancing on the boats by staggering seating is not safe, especially during summer months with rough water
  • We do not have the tools or infrastructure to ask coaches, helms and captains to manage vaccine status and/or negative COVID test results at each practice for each attendee.
  • Wasabi continues to monitor CDC and OHA guidelines and will welcome unvaccinated paddlers back on water as soon as it is safe
