Covid-19 measures at HYC

March 24, 2020

Postponement of Launch and Closure of HYC Clubhouse

After careful deliberation, the HYC Committee of Management has unanimously voted to postpone launch, originally scheduled for April 25th in light of official health guidelines with respect to Covid-19.

In addition, the HYC clubhouse will be closed effective 11:59 pm Tuesday March 24th, initially for a period of one week, subject to extension upon further review. (Entry will be permitted for individuals previously authorized by COM to perform urgent maintenance or administrative functions only).

Until further notice, Officer of the Day duties must still be performed during this time. ODs will be contacted directly with further guidance on how to record their observations.

We appreciate that these measures will be a significant disappointment for some members, and will come as a huge relief for others.  These are extraordinary times, and they require an extraordinary response.   You can expect further communications from your Committee of Management as we navigate these unchartered waters together.

We have been carefully monitoring announcements by health officials and political leaders to ensure our actions as a club comply with or exceed the guidelines being shared.  Additionally, we have struck a Covid-19 working group to expedite the measures we can take at HYC to help flatten the curve of the virus’s progression and to contribute to securing the health and well-being of our members.

Please note that as of today:

  • Wednesday Social nights have been temporarily suspended, as have bookings for the Great Hall.  No new bookings will be accepted.
  • Members are asked not to gather at the club socially, and to minimize their use of club facilities.
  • The HYC kitchen is now closed until further notice.
  • Please respect social distancing protocols when working on your boats prior to launch, or when passing a fellow member.
  • Members are discouraged from bringing a guest onsite, unless absolutely necessary to help in preparing your boat for launch.
  • Members returning from abroad must self-isolate in accordance with federal guidelines for a minimum of 14 days from the day of their arrival, and will not be allowed to participate in work or launch crews until the 14 days has been observed. 
  • Returnees are asked to advise the Committee of Management immediately if their planned date of return is later than April 10.
