GNBC COVID-19 CLOSURE STATEMENT
As we continue to try to navigate through all of the half-information and confusing information that is out there concerning the Stay at Home Order that began at 12:01 PM on April 8, 2021 and in consultation with the City of Niagara Falls Bylaw Office, the Board is eliminating the five-person limit on the property.
Members may attend the boat club property to perform necessary maintenance to get it ready to go in the water. However, there are some restrictions in accordance with the Bylaw Office and Public Health:
Exception: If a contractor is required to work on your boat, he/she must be accompanied by the member or spouse for as long as the work is being performed and masks must be worn
Once your boat is in the water, members will have to adhere to the five (5) person limit from your immediate household
The absolute most essential thing is that all members adhere to local Public Health guidelines while orders are in place. Members who do not comply will be asked to leave the property.
Please show respect for each other and our Club as we move through this pandemic.
Your patience during this challenging time is appreciated.
