Update Regarding Charlestown Marina Operations and COVID-19
We hope you and your family members are safe and healthy. Charlestown Marina’s highest priority is the well-being and safety of our guests and associates. In response to COVID-19 we have implemented a number of changes at our property to assure that you will have a comfortable and safe visit. At this time it is a Massachusetts State mandate that everyone wears a face mask or cloth covering both inside and outside of public spaces if it is not possible to maintain a 6-foot social distance. For that reason, we request that you carry and wear, when necessary, a face mask or cloth covering when you visit Charlestown Marina. Masks must be worn when visiting the marina office and restrooms (unless you have a medical condition).
We are following updates to the State’s guidelines daily. As you make plans to visit Boston our team can provide you with all the necessary updates and information regarding local and regional protocol.
No better way to stay socially distant than to experience a blissful getaway on your boat!
In all areas of our property we have implemented enhanced sanitation protocol with the highest-grade products. We thoroughly sanitized all showers and all contamination points (i.e., handles, faucets, knobs, fixtures, etc.) using Bioesque, an all-natural, botanical, non-toxic, broad-spectrum and safe cleaner, effective at killing 99.9% of all viruses including COVID-19. The restrooms are constantly monitored and disinfected throughout the day by our cleaning staff and displays a sanitation log in each public restroom. We have also strategically placed hand sanitizer stations throughout the property to keep you protected, including next to our marina gangway gates and in our marina office.
Our marina associates have been trained in exercising the recommended guidelines set forth by the State, the CDC, the WHO and our local and regional boating associations. Our marina staff will be respectfully practicing social distancing and will be wearing protective masks if unable to keep to a 6-foot social distance.
We request that our marina guests practice the following State guidelines for recreational boating:
- Only persons from the same household should be together on a boat at one time.
- No more than 10 people may be in a boat at one time.
- No gathering or groups of persons from multiple households will be permitted on boat ramps, docks, piers etc., and all users shall practice strict social distancing.
- All recreational crafts shall remain a safe distance apart. Tying boats or other crafts together is prohibited.
All recreational boating is subject to the discretion of local officials, harbormasters, and law enforcement.
