UPDATED OCTOBER 2021
The Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks takes the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously and wants to minimize any risk in furthering transmission of the coronavirus. However, the club does not want to cancel all of its events and programs. Outdoor exercise is vital to our physical and mental health, especially in winter. Club programs and events help motivate people to continue skiing.
Therefore, the club has modified all of its programs and events to minimize the risk of coronavirus transmission while still being able to encourage people to get out and ski. These modifications will be continually monitored, as will the situation with the coronavirus across Fairbanks and Alaska. If deemed necessary, the NSCF board will make further changes. It is the board’s great hope that it will be able to ease these restrictions earlier rather than later, but that will depend on the coronavirus situation across the broader community.
NSCF PROGRAM MITIGATION MEASURES
(These are general descriptions. Some of the programs have more detailed plans. Participants of those programs are notified about the most current plan details.)
RETURN TO SPORT
Guidelines and recommendations for return to activity after COVID-19 are changing and developing as more information becomes available. If your child is positive for COVID or you think they have had COVID, NSCF recommends evaluation and discussion with your Primary Care Provider specifically regarding appropriate timing for return to skiing before they return to an NSCF program.
