In order to reduce the likelihood of transmission of COVID-19 amongst our employees, customers, and guests, Miyar Adventures has adopted practices that meet or exceed the recommendations of the CDC and local government. These practices do not eliminate the risk of infection with COVID-19 while participating in our programs, and you do so at your own risk. These practices are periodically updated to align with the recommendations of authorities. Our most recent COVID-19 protocols will be provided in a logistics document prior to departure on one of our trips:
Reduced Weekend Guiding
For popular routes we are attempting to reschedule climbs for weekdays when crowding at trailheads and campsites is less of a logistic and health issue.
We will maintain a distance of six or more feet from all other persons when possible to do so. When this is difficult or impossible, such as when at a multi-pitch belay or while ascending steep terrain on a short-rope, you have the option to wear a mask if preferred.
Hand Washing or Disinfecting
Clients should bring their own hand sanitizer or disinfectant to use at meal times, bathroom times, and before and after touching public surfaces.
Reduced Sharing of Group Gear
We may request that participants provide their own equipment when possible. Some of this equipment was previously provided by Miyar Adventures when booking a trip. This includes tents and rock climbing protection. If participants are not able to provide their own equipment, Miyar will work out a plan with participants.
No Food Sharing
Food sharing is OK for people who live in the same household only.
No Multi-Household Sharing of Tents
Whenever possible, clients are asked to bring their own tents from home. These will be single-occupancy tents unless those sharing a tent are from the same household. In the event Miyar provides a tent, it will be for solo-occupancy use unless sharing with a member of the same household.
Rescheduling of Guides and Clients Who Have Symptoms of Illness, or who have been in Contact with a Person with a Known COVID-19 Infection:
If you have come into contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the last 14 days, or if you yourself have had symptoms of an illness that could be COVID-19 or have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days, we will work with you to reschedule your trip for a future date. We will reschedule any guides who have had similar exposure or symptoms.
