I have increased the disinfection frequency of harnesses, helmets, and climbing shoes.
If you do not have your helmet, I will provide you with one and with a lightweight disposable surgical cap.
During the tour hand sanitizer will be available to all of my guests.
When traveling by car it will be necessary to wear a mask. The use of the mask is recommended in mountain huts, cable cars, and in situations of close contact. Outdoors, however, keeping the right safety distance from each other, the mask will not be necessary.
If you don’t feel well and your body temperature exceeds 37° please give up the tour. Even if you have been in contact with someone who is sick, I invite you to give up.
What is SARS-CoV-2? • What is COVID-19?
Severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the name given to the new 2019 coronavirus.
• COVID-19 is the name given to the disease associated with the virus.
• SARS-CoV-2 is a new strain of coronavirus that has not previously been identified in humans.
How is the new coronavirus transmitted? How does it spread (easily)?
Current evidence suggests that SARS-CoV-2 spreads among people:
• Indirectly (through contaminated objects or surfaces)
• Through close contact with infected people – through secretions in the mouth and nose (saliva, respiratory secretions, or droplet droplets).
When a sick person coughs, sneezes, talks, or sings, these secretions are released from their mouth or nose. People who are in close contact (within 1 metre) with an infected person can become infected, if droplets enter their mouth, nose, or eyes.
To avoid contact with these droplets, it is important to stay at least 1 metre away from others, wash your hands frequently, and cover your mouth and nose with a handkerchief or bent elbow when sneezing or coughing. When physical distance (standing 1 meter or more away) is not possible, an important measure to protect others is to wear a mask. It is always essential to wash your hands frequently.
Sick people can release infected droplets on objects and surfaces (called fomites) when they sneeze, cough, or touch surfaces (tables, handles, handrails). By touching these objects or surfaces, other people can become infected by touching their eyes, nose, or mouth with contaminated (unwashed) hands.
Therefore, it is essential to wash your hands properly and regularly, with soap and water or an alcohol-based product, and to clean surfaces frequently.
