General Rules until further notice – derived from State of Vermont Executive Order

All employees, vendors and members are required to strictly adhere to CDC, OSHA, and State physical distancing and health and safety guidelines. (Note: Canada has the exact same health and safety guidelines)

You are not allowed on the property if sick with respiratory symptoms (fever, cough and or shortness of breath). Stay at home if sick

OVER NIGHT STAYS ARE ALLOWED – I hoped but did not expect to get this at this time

Bath house closed for now OPENING May 22

  • We will clean as usual at 8:00 AM; 12:00 PM and 6 PM every day as usual but we will add cleaning all touch surfaces with an approved alcohol based disinfectant
  • As an extra precaution we will leave a small spray bottle of the same disinfectant in each bathroom if you choose to use between our scheduled cleaning times – if missing they will NOT be replaced

Only transient boats from Vermont are allowed – definitely did not expect to get this

Only 6 people (that includes staff) in the office and ship’s store at one time – wait outside with appropriate social distancing

Social distancing of at least 6’ must be maintained without facial coverage – even with guests on your boat

Everyone on the property must have a method of covering their nose and mouth by a method approved by the CDC and other health agencies (scarf, gaiter, mask, etc – it does not have to be an N-95 mask) and must be used if within 6’ of others (except your house hold family)

Only one Boater family unit or marina employee may be on the dock accessing or egressing a specific finger dock. If someone is on the dock wait until they clear onto their boat or onto land before accessing the dock
