COVID-19 and bushwalking

Bushwalking is a relatively safe activity during pandemic of respiratory disease, but travelling in a vehicle with windows closed could provide opporunity for disease spread.

I suggest to follow NT guidelines because we need to protect ourselves and keep our health workforce strong.

Walkers must be symptom free.

Current recommendations are that if there is to be the possibility of exposure in an enclosed space such as in a car, people should be asked whether they have travelled outside Australia in the past 14 days. If so, then we should ensure that they do not share enclosed vehicle space with others, following the advice of Dr Vicki Krause Head of NT Centre for Disease Control. We may need more vehicles.

It’s a live situation so things will change, and we need to keep safe.

About centralozbushwalkers

We are an incorporated association, but really we are an informal group of bushwalkers. We conduct day and overnight walks in Central Australia, both on- and off-track. Visitors and new members are welcome on the walks.
