Keeping our participants and guides safe during COVID-19
Kate and I and our Guidess team are so excited to be leading adventures again. With new regulations and recommendations being updated regularly from the Center for Disease Control we wanted to share our COVID-19 requirements so you are aware of what precautions we are taking to keep you safe while providing a fun outdoor experience.
Keeping groups small
This is something we do with our trips anyway to reduce the impact on the environment, especially on overnight adventures. With COVID we are keeping our groups to 10 or less.
Staying 6 feet away from each other
Most of the time in the outdoors we are able to stay spaced out and recreating outside is still one of the safer activities you can do right now.
Providing masks if they are needed
If there’s a time we need to be close together, we have masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer easily accessible.
Separate sleeping areas
On overnight adventures we usually combine people in tents to reduce the impact on the land. We are providing tents or hammocks for each person who needs them so we can social distance.
Asking “COVID Questions”
More than likely you have been asked the “COVID Questions” by now. Before trips we will check in with everyone and ask, “Have you experienced symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 14 days?” “Have you been around someone who has experienced COVID-19 in the past 14 days?” If answering yes to either question we will not allow guests to come on the trip.
I hope this answers some of your questions regarding COVID-19 and how we are keeping you safe. We are grateful that we are still able to get outdoors and enjoy nature during these times. Check out our trips on our website to learn more about what we have coming up.
If you are still in need to social distance please sign up for my Online Guide to Outdoor Wellness, it’s a great online program that provides yoga, breathing exercises, guided meditations, hiking activities and daily journaling prompts.
