EV COVID SAFETY PLAN
Our club is committed to safe and responsible riding. All members must adhere to the following guidelines:
BEFORE ATTENDING A CYCLING PRACTICE/ RIDE all participants, coaches and their parents/guardians will:
Know how COVID-19 spreads.
Know the symptoms of COVID-19.
MEMBERS WILL NOT attend practice if sick or if they have been contact traced by public health. If a coach or rider has been sick, they must be symptom free in order to return to practice.
Anyone who has arrived from outside of Canada is required by law to self-isolate for 14 days and monitor for symptoms before returning to practice.
Anyone who has travelled domestically or travelled beyond their own community must monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.
Registration for practices or rides is required. Team Snap tracking must be filled in 48hrs before each practice
Complete COVID-19 screening before each practice/session. We recommend this tool: https://bc.thrive.health/
UPON ARRIVAL AT RIDES or TRAINING:
Riders will be required to confirm that they have completed the daily COVID-19 screening and can confirm they have no symptoms before arriving at any organized ride or practice.
Meet with your coach/rider leader in the designated meeting area for the practice.
Maintain 3m distance apart from everyone, and do not congregate in a group larger than 10 people total.
DEVO parents are also asked to avoid congregating in groups.
Please arrive on time for your specified departure time. Groups will most likely be staggered to avoid having more than 10 riders in one place at a time.
DURING PRACTICES/RIDES or TRAINING:
Groups may not exceed more than 10 people.
Maintain 3m distance apart from each other at all times, unless it is unsafe to do so.
Cover coughs and sneezes.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
Bring all necessary liquids and foods to be able to provide for yourself.
Athletes must not share any food
Bring all necessary tools, equipment, and clothing.
No sharing equipment.
No handshaking, high fives or hugging. No blowing your nose or spitting.
If you begin to feel unwell and demonstrate any COVID-19 symptoms during practice you must leave immediately and contact the local public health office for recommendations. You must also inform the club of your health status.
All riders must carry their own face mask or face covering, and hand sanitizer.
No drop-ins are permitted. Anyone who is riding with the club must be registered as a club member and have CBC membership too (this applies to parent sweeps too).
Coaches and ride leaders are tasked with ensuring everyone is adhering to social/physical distancing rules. They have the right to ask a member to leave a ride if they are not cooperating.
Do not congregate as a group after practices or rides.
DEVO kids should be promptly picked up at the designated meeting time and families must not congregate.
IN THE CASE OF AN INJURY / ACCIDENT
Coach/Ride leader will put on face mask and gloves. Athlete puts on own face mask.
If the injury is minor, the coach/ride leader will provide necessary instructions and items for the rider to administer themselves, while staying 2m distance apart.
If the injury requires hands-on attention, the coach/ride leader will administer the appropriate care while being cautious of contact and distance.
Public health is still advising individuals to remain cautious about the number of people they are interacting with. Therefore, it is recommended that individuals limit the number of sport cohorts they are involved with. It is possible for individuals to participate in more than one cohort (e.g. – both a club and a high performance cohort within the same sport or a cohort for two different sports).
