COVID Prevention Measures

COVID-19 Basic Infection Prevention Measures

Updated: April 19, 2021

COVID-19, caused by a new coronavirus, is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. Lake Hosts, even those who have been vaccinated, should follow all CDC and state guidelines. By taking the following infection prevention measures, Lake Hosts conducting courtesy boat inspections will help prevent the spread of the virus while helping boaters prevent the spread of invasive species.

Submit the self-screening form for COVID-19 symptoms before each shift. Seek medical advice and do not work or volunteer at the boat ramp if you answer “yes” to any of the screening questions. 

Practice physical distancing — maintain at least 6 feet between other Lake Hosts, boaters, and the public at all times.

Do not pass out any materials (brochures or decals) to boaters or the public as this violates physical distancing measures.

Avoid congested situations that may make keeping at least 6 feet physical distancing difficult. 

Sit in your vehicle, or temporarily leave the launch, if it becomes too crowded or if you notice someone who could be sick.

Before sharing clipboards, pens, or other tools with other Lake Hosts, disinfect them first. 

Wash hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.

Clean and disinfect frequently used tools, equipment, and frequently touched surfaces (cell phones, tablets, pens, etc.) on a regular basis.

Keep a mask with you at all times. Follow all CDC, state, and local guidelines. Wear a mask when physical distancing isn't possible or as dictated by a local ordinance.
