The organization of the Heineken Roeivierkamp continues to keep a close eye on the developments regarding the coronavirus in the Netherlands. For a decision on potential measures, we will follow the guidelines of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM). Following a consultation with the RIVM on March 10th, no changes to the competition program are currently expected.
The organization is in close contact with the Municipality of Amsterdam, the Municipal Health Services of Amsterdam and the Dutch Rowing Federation. Following their guidelines, we will provide extra possibilities for participants to wash and/or desinfect their hands. In addition, we ask everyone who has symptoms of disease, such as fever and cough, to act adequately and follow-up with a visit to their doctor or the Municipal Health Services.
If, in the coming days, the situation changes in such a way that the competition can’t take place, this will be announced by e-mail to the participants and via the website and social media.
