HIKING SAFELY DURING COVID-19

Updated April 1, 2021

To keep yourself and others safe and healthy, please follow these guidelines:

  • Do not join hikes outside your municipality/region.
  • Hike leaders will collect emergency contact before starting the hike.
  • Stay home if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or if you are unwell.
  • Group hikes are currently restricted to 5 people to permit social distancing, even if regional guidelines allow larger public gatherings.
  • Carpool to group hikes only with people in your bubble.
  • Practice Physical Distancing. Keep 2 metres apart from anyone not in your bubble. Move aside to allow others to pass.
  • Masks are not required on hikes except when you cannot maintain a 2 metre distance.
  • Do not expect public washrooms to be open.
  • Hikers should carry their own basic first aid materials, such as bandaids, tick removers, etc.

Above all – enjoy yourselves. We are lucky to be able to go out and hike safely!
