and 'hello'. Blow your nose, cough, sneeze, or
clear your airway at least 2 metres away from

public places to help limit the risk of spread to
others if you will be within 2 metres of people
other than members of your own household.
**The government has indicated that masks may
help, but the evidence is inconclusive.
Therefore, we are leaving it to the discretion of
participants to choose whether you'd like to wear
masks. Be aware that this is not a requirement
you must be comfortable with others potentially
not wearing masks.
2. Are you in a high- risk category? Consider
isolating if you are in a category with an
immunocompromised system. Consultations with
respiratory therapists indicate that individuals
who suffer from asthma should exercise the same
level of care they would exercise with other
viruses. Alberta's Chief Medical Officer has
stated individuals over 60, or anybody with pre-
existing medical conditions are at increased risk
of complications from Coronvirus (COVID-19).

of symptoms and until your symptoms have resolved

self-isolation you can not legally go outside for
a walk through your neighbourhood or park.
Your EOC event hosts are volunteers. Participants
are responsible for assessing the current road
conditions, current weather conditions, their
current physical condition, current trail
conditions, and are responsible for their own
safety and well-being.

benefits of outdoor activity for staying healthy.

The province is permitting groups of up to 15
participants to gather with physical distancing.
Therefore, we have capped all events
to help reduce overall group size.
The province requires that you be healthy to
attend events. Therefore, the event organizer
will exercise their discretion to send a
participant home if they display symptoms of
