Update


The relaxation of Covid rules does not mean the pandemic is over. It means they now have room in the ICU for you. Please continue to make good choices.



Remember:



Avoid the 3 C's



Confined Spaces

Crowds

Close Contact



Follow the 3 W's.



Wash your hands

Wear a mask when required

Widen your physical distancing.





As case counts reduce and vaccination numbers improve, trip organizers may, at their discretion, arrange carpool locations. Those members who feel comfortable may carpool. However, we do not want anyone to feel pressure to a) either join a carpool or b) take on carpool passengers if they are not entirely comfortable. Please make that clear to participants. In many cases, people will elect to self-drive or meet at the trailhead.



Numbers on outdoor events are increased to 20. (at trip organizer discretion)
