Covid- 19 Procedure
Updated 7th May 2021
We are operating inline with the latest Bermuda Government Guidelines. We have summarized our full coronavirus safe operating procedure.
Our Key Points to our policy
1. Governing Body Guidelines
Bermuda Government and the RYA guidelines for coaching specifics
2. Preparing/arriving to come to the centre
Any participant including someone in the same household with the following symptoms will be refused entry to the centre and be required to follow Bermuda Government guidelines.
Fever ( above 100.4 °F (38°C) ), tiredness, dry cough
All customers (Over 2 years old) and staff must have a face covering on properly over their month and nose (masks with vents are not allowed) and where face coverings cannot be worn, physical distance of 2 metres must be maintained at all times.For Non-Immunized (Not had 2 doses of covid-19 vaccine + 2 weeks) Persons Recently Travelled:
Non-Immunized travelers are required to wear a traveler’s wristband.
All customers or staff who have recently arrived from overseas must quarantine at their accommodation and only be allowed to enter the centre with 3 negative PCR covid-19 tests (after day 4 negative test- orange wrist band). They are limited to private tuition, own bubble of group travelers tuition, equipment hire (kayaks, SUPs, single handed boats and windsurfing ONLY) until their Day 8 negative test.
If you do not have a pre departure test, you will only be allowed to enter after your day 8 negative test (yellow wristband). However, any group activity or kids activity/camp week involving local school kids and those in the same household that cannot safely socially distance at all times must not attend until their negative day 8 covid test (yellow wristband). See Travelers Quarantine guide.For Immunized (Had 2 doses of covid-19 vaccine + 2 weeks) Persons Recently Travelled:
Immunized travelers are not required to wear a Traveler Wristband.
Immunized customers or staff who has received a negative pre-arrival test result must quarantine until receiving a negative arrival test result. Customers and Staff can attend the centre after this but social distance of 2 m and mask wearing must be strictly adhered as well as being in well ventilated area. Immunized travelers (age 16+) without a negative pre-arrival test result travelling must quarantine until receiving a negative day 4 test result.

3. Temperature Checks and Contract Tracing
All customers will have their temperature taken on arrival of the centre each day and asked about their current health condition. We will keep a list of all customers who have attended the centre on a day by day basis for contact tracing purposes.
All Participants will need to complete our coronavirus (covid-19) health declaration, 2 days prior to attending a course or first session each week, which is available on our website under ‘policies & waivers’.Please make sure you fill in the correct one depending on your activity location. This must be ‘preferably’ completed on your own device, prior to arrival at the centre.
All Staff will have their temperature taken before the start of each day. They will be trained in the symptoms of covid-19 and any staff member who displays symptoms must self isolate at home away from the work place until symptoms go away which maybe followed with a negative covid-19 test result. This is dependent on the Department of Health case management team.
4. Cleaning and disinfecting/ Social distancing
We are implementing a cleaning and disinfecting protocol as detailed in our full policy and putting into place the Bermuda Government covid-19 cleaning and disinfecting policy with and/or without suspected or known covid-19 cases.
All our staff will be trained on the cleaning protocol and will have watched the 'Infection Prevention and Control Training Revised 43-minute’ government video.
All our teaching will be done outside in the open, making sure 2m physical distance can be maintained.
We aim to have some markers as an aid to assist with keeping this your distance.
We ask that you please come to the centre already changed ready for your session or activity week to avoid using the restrooms for changing.
We will no longer be providing any plastic water cups with the water refill station for hygienic reasons. Instead, we ask that you please bring a full reusable bottle of water to the centre.
We have 'U Sail Bermuda' branded reusable water bottles to reduce our plastic footprint at the centre. These are available for sale online for $15 per bottle and can be brought at the Harrington Sound centre with card payment only.
