Is Punting Safe?

The world health organisation has specified that COVID 19 is more difficult to catch outdoors. We think that a river is a great place for social distancing. Check out the following video of the river looking peaceful, it’s much more clear than the busy streets:

The Changes we have put in place to stop contamination

  1. Our staff will be wearing the correct levels of PPE. PPE will vary depending on the staff role and whether the particular part of the punting experience requires more or less PPE.Personal Protective Equipment for Covid 19
  2. Boats and equipment will be wiped down with antiviral spray between customers
  3. Hand sanitizer will be available to customers at all points during the punting experience
  4. Customers will be able to attend in groups which are permitted by the government at the time of departure. Such groups will be separated by one + meter or by an impact-resistant screen such as the one depicted in the following video. Chauffeurs will adhere to the two-meter rule or one meter with a visor.

 

Social Distancing rules for separate households (hen parties)

Up to 6 people from separate households can meet outside as long as they adhere to social distancing measures. In the case that every person is from a different household, then the boat capacity is reduced from 12 down to 7. Capacity will vary depending on whether some of those people are from the same household.
