COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

COVID-19 PROTOCOLS (August -- December 2020) 


It is the hope of Oregon Pelagic Tours to continue to run its projected fall schedule in 2020, assuming that the COVID-19 pandemic allows us to do so. Recognizing the realities of space on our boats, although we cannot require passengers and crew to maintain a six foot distance from others, Oregon Pelagic Tours will adopt the following protocols suggested by the CDC and the OHA (Oregon Health Authority).

Throughout the remainder of 2020 at least, Oregon Pelagic Tours will:

Encourage distancing to the greatest degree possible by limiting the number of passengers to 16 on all trips.

Promote the safety of passengers and crew by requiring all passengers and guides to bring their own face mask or other mouth and nose covering, including bandanas and neck gaiters. Oregon Pelagic Tours will NOT be able to provide masks or face coverings to passengers without one.  

Require use of face coverings AT ALL TIMES ON THE VESSEL. (Due to the current state mandate, we have changed this protocol to require wearing masks throughout the trip.) Neck gaiters and bandanas that cover the mouth and nose will be acceptable. 

Requests passengers cancel their trip due to feeling ill the day of, or if they know they have been exposed to COVID-19 within 2 weeks of their trip. In these cases, Oregon Pelagic Tours will offer a full refund or credit toward a future trip.

Encourage the use of hand sanitizers frequently during any trip.

Require every passenger to read and sign an agreement to abide by the protocols.


ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: 

I have read these policies and agree to abide by them. I understand that people in any public setting may run the risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus, and agree not to hold OREGON PELAGIC TOURS and its employees responsible if I become ill after my pelagic.
