LCYC Clubhouse COVID-19 Protocols Phase II and III


As we navigate through this pandemic and boating season, be assured that the LCYC Board of Directors are actively working to provide a clubhouse that can be available to our members and create as safe an environment as possible.  Clubhouse rules will be laid out in phases and revised according to recommendations and/or order from the city, state or federal government and based on recommendations of the CDC and Minnesota Department of Health.  Current guidelines are based on the Minnesota Stay Safe Emergency Executive Order 20-56. Updates and additional phases will be posted.

In order to facilitate maintaining Phase I, II & III protocols, the club will provide the following: hand sanitizing stations, tissues and disinfectant located throughout the club, clear guidelines for hand washing and disinfecting areas around you posted throughout the club, no touch waste containers, gloves for placing/retrieving food from the fridge/freezer, and cleaning supplies.  The club has made arrangements for high touch surfaces and areas (including bathrooms) to be disinfected daily, Thursday-Sunday.

Thank you for your part in keeping our club safe for all.

Outside: larger tables may have six members of household/boat and round tables may have four members of household/boat.

    8. Avoid congregating (with social distancing) near entrances and general pass through areas.

    *The dishwasher is the best way to sterilize dishes and utensils, however, it takes a community effort of making sure it gets turned on (when it is mostly full, doesn’t have to be packed full), and that it gets emptied and contents are put away.  There is no one person in charge of this task.  If you see it needs doing, please do it.  Thank you.
