Covid-19 Protocol Update May 21, 2021

On May 22 at 12:01 the province will permit outdoor gatherings of up to 5 persons. This means that as of Saturday, we can again offer local (within 1/2 hour) hikes of up to 5 persons, if leaders are comfortable to do so.  It is still necessary to maintain physical distance of 2 meters, and if that is not possible, wear masks and resume physical distancing as soon as possible.  It is a good idea to carry a mask in your pocket in case of emergencies, such as tending to a wounded hiker, etc.  Hikers should pre-register to prevent over-booking of hikes, and if two or more hikes go from the same place, they should be staggered in their meeting times by 1/2 hour minimum.  Car-pooling is still not permitted, except with members of your own household.  If you should be self-isolating because of symptoms or exposure to someone suspected of having Covid-19, please do not attend a hike.
We will continue to advise of changes in the Ganaraska Hiking Trail Association Inc.’s Covid-19 protocol as the changes happen.
Enjoy the new season.
