COVID 19 Update – March 17 2020
At Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides, we hold a great professional concern for the health and wellness of our staff, clients and community. In response to the challenge posed by COVID-19, our office has begun to operate remotely and we have decided to postpone all services through April 1. We believe that playing our part in limiting social contact is part of our responsibility and that “flattening the curve” will have a positive impact, allowing our medical community to have the most resources available. (See below for information on flattening the curve)
After April 1, we will reassess on a weekly basis our ability to offer services and assist clients in exploring the healing and therapeutic effects of the outdoors. We are accepting bookings for April and onwards, but will always offer the option of postponing those trips and services if you need to change your plans or if the scientists and professionals in charge of slowing the spread of the virus continue to call for social distancing.
We encourage everyone to continue focusing on their health and wellness. It is important to stay an appropriate distance away from others to reduce the risk of transmission; but, especially in these uncertain times, we believe it will be helpful to take time to connect with nature. If you can, go for a walk, take a bike ride, stretch beneath a tree, explore a new trail, sit by a stream, or simply go outside and take some deep breaths.

As explained in the New York Times article, Flattening the Coronavirus Curve, public health experts believe that social distancing efforts can significantly reduce the number of deaths in our community and the strain on our hospitals and emergency services – ensuring that resources are focused on those that need it most.
