Here at KerryClimbing we are committed to offering you an amazing, post lock-down mountain experience in the safest possible way.
Please note that we will be adhering to social distancing but we must stress that there is a personal responsibility for you to also adhere to keeping a safe distance from others doing the activity that are not part of your household. We must note that there may be a time when our guides / instructors may have to (after doing a risk assessment of the situation) decide that a helping hand and getting closer to a client to assist them is necessary to safe guard them. At all times client safety is paramount to us.
In the outdoor environment the risk of contracting a virus is diminished. Please take note of the following precautions to help to protect yourself, our staff, and our local rural community.
- If anything has changed since completing the form, please update us.
- Please travel separately if you are not part of the same household or if traveling together use a face covering during the journey.
- Please either purchase your lunch in your local community or bring a pre-packed lunch from home.
- Bring all of your own food and drink, sun cream, midge repellent, clothing where possible.
- Please fill up your tank in your local petrol station.
- If using public transport please use a face covering during the journey.
- Check for symptoms of Covid-19 in yourselves and other people in your household in the 14 days before your activity with us. These include a high temperature, a new, continuous cough (coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours), a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste. If symptoms occur, you must stay at home (or go home) and self-isolate for 14 days. This applies at any time before and during the activity.
The day of the activity
- When meeting the guide please ensure you remember to adhere to social distancing.
- Bring a face covering if you would feel more comfortable wearing one (scarf/buff will do), hand gel, wipes and eye protection such as sun glasses.
- Understand that mountain rescue teams might not respond to an accident or might be slower than normal to respond.
- Maintain 2m separation as much as possible throughout the day but also understand the lower risk of transmission outdoors.
- Take more ownership of any personal medical problems.
- Accept that to stay separate from other people we might need to change plans, start from different car parks, alter routes, use different venues and reduce time spent on summits.
- Contact us if you become ill within 14 days of your activity with us.
