As you know the Simcoe/Muskoka District Health Unit, in which most of our trail and our clubs are located, is going into GREY/LOCKDOWN as of Monday March 1, 2021, which means that
· Outdoor gatherings are limited to 10 people with physical distancing in place
For the Ganaraska Hiking Trail Association, this means that the maximum number of hikers in a group must be limited to 10. For clarity, the maximum number of participants congregating at the same time in the same place is 10, and if two groups wish to go on the same route, they must assemble at least 30 minutes apart from each other.
In addition, the following measure applies for Grey–Lockdown:
· Trips outside of the home should only be for essential reasons (… or exercise and physical activity)
Ganaraska Hiking Trail Association’s executive therefore recommends that travel to hikes be limited to within your municipality/region. We are counting on our members to be responsible, keep travel for hiking to a minimum and stay close to home during the provincial stay-at-home order.
Travel between Covid 19 zones must be avoided, and carpooling is not allowed.
Thank you for your cooperation. Stay safe.
