CCCTS COVID-19 National Safety Plan
The goals of the CCCTS National Safety Plan are to protect our members and communities, to do our part in the collective effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, and to adhere to the Public Health Orders of the jurisdictions we cycle in. These guidelines are for the benefit of Chapter group rides and Chapters may provide supplementary conditions.
The plan is based on information from numerous sources (see resource page) and as of date shown below. The plan is subject to revisions as recommendations and restrictions change.
As of October 1 2021 the CCCTS Board of Directors requires all participants in CCCTS activities to be fully vaccinated for the COVID 19 virus and to receive their booster shots when eligible.
Members planning to engage in a group activity are expected to evaluate their health and state of mind prior to the start of the activity. Only ride if you are healthy, take extra care and pay attention to your surroundings.
- If you have any symptoms of a cold or COVID-19 (fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, headache, or shortness of breath) you should NOT participate in a ride. If symptoms begin during an organized ride keep your distance from others and wear a mask if indoors.
- Do not touch your face, eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Be self-sufficient on the bike – leave prepared for nutrition, hydration and mechanicals. Bring your own hand sanitizer and mask
- Do not share equipment, food, drinks, water bottles, etc.
- Do not shake hands, hug, or high-five to celebrate.
Ride Leader Guidelines
- Ride meeting place should be large enough to allow for physical distancing.
- If the group is larger than 10, consider staggering departure times. Riders are encouraged to arrive as close to ride start time as possible to limit congregating.
- Plan coffee stops and lunch breaks in places that provide enough space to practice safe distancing. Masks are recommended for indoor locations.
- End-of ride gatherings preferably held outdoors.
Outbreak Action Plan for Hub and Spokes and Multi-Day Tours
The purpose of the Outbreak Action Plan is to limit the spread of infection if an individual becomes ill during a Hub& Spoke event or on a Tour.
- All participants in club activities must be active members of CCCTS with current and up-to-date contact information on file. Hub & Spoke and Tour leaders will carry this information with them for the duration of the event.
- All participants must bring a Covid 19 Antigen rapid test device kit and will use it to test themselves if they have any cold, flu-like or COVID symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, headache or shortness of breath.
- Anyone testing positive will be asked to self-isolate until they are feeling better and testing negative, at which time they may re-join group activities.
- Other group members who may have come into direct or indirect contact with the sick individual will be asked to monitor themselves for symptoms, self-test if symptoms arise and report to the event leader immediately.
