Information Regarding Covid-19 Pandemic

Should we not be able to run this race in person because of Covid-19, it will go virtual and you will be informed on the Ohio River Sternwheel website and Facebook page as soon as that decision has been made. Everyone who is registered for that race will be moved to the virtual race. There will be no refunds.

We will be following the CDC’s guidelines and recommendations on public health and safety measures for Covid-19.

All participants and spectators are required to wear a mask at all times when not running/walking in the race and practice social distancing of six-feet. Exceptions of wearing a mask are listed below as stated in the Director’s Order for Facial Coverings throughout the State of Ohio, signed July 23, 2020, or as it may thereafter be amended…

  • The Order's exceptions include, but are not limited to: l. The individual is under 10 years of age; 2. The individual has a medical condition, including respiratory conditions that restrict breathing, mental health conditions, or disabilities that contraindicate the wearing of a facial covering; 3. The individual is communicating or seeking to communicate with someone who is hearing-impaired or has another disability, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication; 4. The individual is seated and actively consuming food or beverage in a restaurant or bar; or 5. Facial coverings are prohibited by law or regulation; or 6. The individual is actively participating in broadcast communications.
  • To allow the use of whistles or to be heard when coaching or officiating, coaches and officials are not required to wear facial coverings during games and practices. Nothing in this Order prohibits a player, coach, or official from wearing a facial covering while on the field of play if it is practical to do so. Written justification must be immediately provided to local health officials, upon request, explaining why an athlete, student athlete, coach, or volunteer is not required to wear a facial covering when not on the field of play. At minimum, facial coverings (masks) should be cloth/fabric and cover an individual's nose, mouth, and chin.

Hand sanitizer will be readily available for use. 

There must be no congregating before or after the race. Remember, social distancing! Awards will be emailed to the winners.

Anyone experiencing symptoms must stay home. According to the CDC, Covid-19 symptoms include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea. This list does not include all symptoms. The CDC will continue to update symptoms as we learn more about Covid-19. The CDC’s list of Covid-19 symptoms and a “self-checker” is available at http://www.cdc.gov?coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html.
