What precautions are you taking?
Employee Screening– All raft guides will be
vaccinated. All employees will monitor themselves for COVID-19
symptoms prior to their first trip. Employees will go through an
appropriate screening process the day before work, and will have
a thermometer on site to check temperatures. Employees who show
any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 will not be allowed to work
until after the appropriate quarantine protocol is followed.
Guest screening has been enhanced to minimize
participation by at-risk individuals, by individuals displaying
COVID-19 symptoms, and by individuals who have been exposed to
COVID-19. A temperature check will be taken upon arrival.
Transportation – Guests and employees will be
required to wear a mask or face covering during transportation to
and from the river. Our vehicles will be thoroughly cleaned and
sanitized between uses.
Personal Protective Equipment– We will promote
the use of personal protective equipment throughout our trips. We
encourage our guests to bring their own masks/face coverings and
hand sanitizer to utilize during the trip. We will not be
requiring masks to be worn on the river due to safety concerns.
Hygiene – Employees and guests will be
encouraged to wash their hands throughout the day and will have
access to hand sanitizer.
Physical Distancing– We will be practicing
physical distancing when possible. This will be focused on
especially during the pre-trip meeting, safety talk, and PFD
Sanitation – We will increase our commitment to
maintaining a clean environment and to reducing the spread of
viruses and germs during our trips. Special attention will be
paid to sanitizing gear between trips, sanitizing vehicles
between uses, and sanitizing commonly touched surfaces and
equipment between uses.
Employee Training– All our guides have current
First Aid/CPR/AED certifications, COVID-19 prevention training,
and many have Wilderness First Aid/Responder training. In
addition to these certificates, our staff will receive additional
training on protocols to follow in case health issues arise.
