December 6th, 2021
Welcome to the 2021/22 Snowmobile season. It is well advertised and documented that the absolute best practice to contain the spread of COVID-19 is to stay 6ft away from people and wear masks in public indoor settings. Our priority is the health and safety of our Board of Directors, staff members, and guests.
As our Board of Directors and Executives prepare for the 2021/22 season, we have carefully watched the progress of the COVID-19 Pandemic. We have monitored closely the recommendations and precautionary measures of the Health Canada, the BC Centre for Disease Control and the BCSF.
The Kelowna Snowmobile Club is committed to the ongoing safety of our members, riders, and our Team Members. As a result, several precautionary measures have been put in place to ensure that everyone will stay safe while enjoying what the Kelowna Snowmobile Club has to offer.
Risk Assessment and areas to consider
The Kelowna Snowmobile Club’s Board of Directors are working remotely on all aspects of the business. Trailhead collectors will be following the outlined protocols below to keep both themselves, and our members safe and healthy. The cabins are to be used at your own risk and in emergency settings only. Please note the cabins have a listed occupancy limit set out by WorkSafe BC.
COVID-19 KSC Protocols
COVID risks related to the work of the KSC are minimal, but we have established the following policies:
- All employees must complete a self-assessmenthealth screening before starting their shift to ensure they are in good health.
- Trailhead collectors will be wearing masks during payment collection and membership verification.
- Hand sanitizer will be provided for trailhead collectors and guests at payment.
- Our machine operators will sanitize after each use, including all high touch points/surfaces
- Guests will be asked to wear a mask while in direct contact with the trailhead. I.e.,collecting payment/verifying memberships.
- Trailhead attendants will be collecting information from riders for contact tracing and rescue situations.
- Physical distancing is always encouraged (minimum of 2 metres).
- Online purchases of memberships and day passes are highly recommended to limit the contact between trailhead collectors and guests.
If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms we ask you to please to stay home and re-visit our area once you are in better health.
As the COVID-19 Pandemic is rapidly evolving the KSC will continue to follow recommendations from the Provincial Health Officer and monitor our workplace for risks associated with COVID-19 and update this policy as required.
