Club Update - guidelines - May 1, 2021

COVID-19 Guidelines for NLYC 2021

(As of April 11, 2021)

In the interest of safety and fairness to all NLYC members, we would like to present some COVID-19 guidelines to keep all our members safe this year. COVID-19, along with new variants, continue to circulate within our community. We, as a private club, have a responsibility not only to protect our members, but to protect the community we live in.

4-5-2021 was the first day Wisconsin residents age 16 and up were eligible for the COVID 19 vaccine. We also understand that vaccine appointments can be hard to come by, and full immunity is reached at different times depending on the vaccine. Therefore, we have some guidelines that should be in effect, at least until all members have had the opportunity to be vaccinated if they choose to do so.

As we monitor the cases of COVID-19 in Waukesha county, and the availability of vaccines, we will be able to relax our COVID-19 guidelines throughout the spring / summer.

We have based our current guideline on the information from Waukesha County and the CDC. Latest guidance from Waukesha County on large gathering recommendations (Waukesha county 3/24/2021).

This is summarized as:

- No limitations on the numbers of people that can be hosted indoors as long as they:

1. Space 6 feet apart from those from separate households

2. Wear masks

3. Practice hand hygiene and frequent cleaning of common surfaces

- No limitations on the numbers of people that can be hosted outdoors as long as they:

1. Space 6 feet apart

2. Or wear a mask when not able to physically distance

Many Club members have already been vaccinated. At this time (4/11/21) the CDC recommendations (which Waukesha County recommends following) state:

If You’ve Been Fully Vaccinated

You Can:

Visit inside a home or private setting without a mask with other fully vaccinated people of any age

Visit inside a home or private setting without a mask with one household of unvaccinated people who are not at risk for severe illness

You Shouldn't:

Visit indoors, without a mask, with people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19

Attend medium or large gatherings

Therefore, at this time the NLYC Board requests the following:

1. While outside on the NLYC property, follow CDC guidelines, and wear a mask if 6’ distancing cannot be maintained with those that are unvaccinated or whose vaccination status you do not know.

a. It is still a good idea to physically distance even if you are vaccinated. Many of the COVID variants will cause illness even in those that are vaccinated.

2. While indoors please wear a mask unless eating or drinking.

3. Whenever possible our formal Social events should use the outside space, but the Clubhouse may be used if CDC guidelines are followed as noted above.

4. Preparing food for a social event:

· We ask that those preparing food for a social event please wear a mask and gloves while cooking, etc.

· No buffet serving style. The Host(s) will plate and serve the food to each individual. If people want a second serving the Host must serve the food.

· The person plating the food should wear a mask and gloves.

· Food is to be covered when not actively being served.

· Use disposable plates, glasses, utensils, and napkins until further notice.

· It will no longer be necessary to have all food catered for social events.

5. Private NLYC rentals will resume in 2021

We ask that private party renters follow the same guidelines for their event as stated above in order to show respect for the decision that the NLYC Board has made for the safety of our members and community.

5 Reasons Why All Kids Should Sail

There might be nothing in the world that packs as many life lessons as the activity of sailing. It teaches teamwork, engineering, history, patience, oceanography, ecology…all in one fell swoop. Because of this, we believe every kid should learn to sail and here’s the top five reasons why. Feel free to add your own.
