Covid-19 outbreak risk at the orange level - provide your crew information about vaccinations

Updated: Jul 31, 2021

Due to the spread of the coronavirus, the risk level in Estonia has increased from yellow, or medium level, to orange, or high level, and the Government took note of the change in the risk level at their cabinet meeting on July 29.

The orange risk level means that infections also spread outside of outbreaks within the community and restrictions will be established to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

The number of participants in events and activities may exceed the established limit (100 participants are allowed outdoors since August 9) only if infection safety and monitoring thereof is ensured. This means that only people who have been vaccinated, recovered from COVID-19, or presented a negative test result can take part in events and activities. In such cases, there may be up to 6,000 attendees indoors and up to 12,000 outdoors.

The COVID-19 certificates of all attendants must be checked, their authenticity and validity must be verified, and in case of doubt, the identity of the person providing the certificate must be established.

The OA of the Alexela ORC World Championship 2021 is taking every step to meet our responsibilities to deliver a safe and controlled event and we adjust our actions and protocols to keep everyone safe in the Covid-19 pandemic.

NOTE! We urge all entrants of the event to add all your crew members to the Manage2Sail system with an information about their Covid-19 vaccination status to help organizers to plan a smooth process of checking the certificates and planning the need for testing and other measures for the safe event.
