COVID-19 Health and Safety

As of January 1, 2022, these are the precautions we will take and will expect all participants to adhere to at ALL our events: 

Consistent with its duty to provide and maintain a safe environment that is free of recognized hazards, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine (“BCM”) has adopted this policy to safeguard the health and well-being of employees and their families, our customers and visitors, others who spend time in our facilities, and the community from the risks associated with COVID-19. This policy is intended to comply with all state and local laws. It is based upon guidance provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Maine Office of the Governor, and other public health and licensing authorities, as applicable.

Scope 

This policy applies to all BCM board members, volunteers, and event participants. 

Policy

BCM board members, volunteers, and participants for any and all BCM organized indoor events (open house, donor event, or other gathering) and outdoor events (bike ride, donor event, or other gathering) must show proof of full vaccination or negative COVID-19 test from a provider (at home-tests will not be accepted) at the event with a matching photo ID. Full vaccination is valid two weeks after the last recorded dose. Additionally, all participants and volunteers are required to wear a mask indoors or when in close proximity to others, such as during check-in or food service lines. Anyone who does not comply with this policy will be asked to leave.
