COVID-19 Pandemic and Suspension of In-Person Outings

25 Sep 2020 6:25 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The 5 Winds board has currently suspended all club sponsored in-person outings scheduled for this 2020/2021 season.  This step was originally taken in light of government guidance aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19. 

The 5 Winds board reviewed these major areas of concern;

  • evolving public guidance on risks of COVID-19 transmission between individuals from different households   in a 4 hour winter bus environment.
  • high mean age of our members and their potential higher health risk
  • changes in the clubs liability insurance policy

The 5Winds board has decided to suspend all in-person outings for the 2020/2021 ski/snowshoe season.  This policy will be reassessed at the 2021 AGM.
