To Cohort or Not To Cohort

Even though the AHS guidelines allow us to participate in a sport cohort of up to 50 persons, where we don’t need to adhere to strict physical distancing, your club is NOT implementing that change yet.

Your executive believe it’s still far too early to open up the risk of COVID-19 exposure to anyone in the club.

Witness the current outbreak at the Misericordia Hospital. In just 2 days it has gone sideways for many people. Our hearts go out to the patients infected there, and one who has died. But more than 200 staff members have also been put at risk, many who will need to self-isolate for 2 weeks, staying away from work. That puts a huge workforce burden on the hospital.

We can’t imagine putting our members at risk of quarantine, let alone getting sick too. Sorry (not sorry) folks. We’ll keep our rides in their current physical distanced format.

Feel free to chime in with your thoughts. Send them to me at Coaching@VelocityCyclingClub.ca

Surround yourself with people who support, inspire and challenge you to be your best.
