RIVERSPORT has instituted precautions to reduce the risk of exposure to the virus by conducting all interactions outdoors, disinfecting all equipment between uses, and requiring hand sanitizer use before and after activities. Furthermore, to maintain required social distancing staff will only engage physically with guests if their immediate safety is at risk. In order to participate in Discover Flatwater Kayaking, guests must be able to fasten their own PFDs and launch their kayaks with only verbal assistance from staff.
Guests are permitted to receive assistance from another member of their household, whether that be another Discover Flatwater Kayaking participant, or a spectator who is present at the beginning and end of each lesson.
