As ADK (Adirondack Mountain Club) continues to monitor the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), ADK has developed the following risk management protocols for in-person programs which include our day hike and trailless backpacking series. The risk of contracting COVID-19 during an ADK program cannot be eliminated, but we have identified mitigation strategies to reduce that risk in a pre-vaccine environment. With those strategies in place, we believe the risk can be managed appropriately.
