Outings ResumedGood News!!! Seniors Outdoors! will resume outing activities in May. The Seniors Outdoors! Board met on Tuesday evening, March 23rd, and approved resumption of outdoor activities with some limitations. The Board decided as follows: Seniors Outdoors! will comply with recommendations and guidelines of applicable entities such as the CDC, State of Colorado, San Juan Basin Public Health, and La Plata County. The Outings Committee and SO! Outing Leaders will begin work on a new outings schedule to start as of May 1. SO! Subgroups may also resume their regular outdoor activities in May. Until further notice, completed Covid vaccinations are required for any member to participate in any SO! activity. Enforcement of that requirement will be by the honor system. Seniors Outdoors! will neither organize nor encourage carpooling for its outings. Individual members may, of course, make private carpooling arrangements as they deem appropriate. All outings will be outdoors, so masks will not be required. Social distancing is encouraged but not required. All members are expected to respect the wishes of others for social distancing. Outings will be limited to fifteen members, or less as the Outings Leader may determine. The time for resumption of indoor activities, including SOS dinners, will be determined at a later date depending on changes in the various guidelines. Modifications will be made to these procedures, either more lax or more stringent, depending on future course of the pandemic and guidelines.
