COVID-19

Operational Guidelines

In order to balance the safety of our clients, staff, and the community of the areas we visit during our events, we have established the following procedures for clients and staff PRIOR TO, DURING TRAVEL, and WHILE ATTENDING AN EVENT with True North Expeditions Inc.

 

  1. Clients agree to provide body temperature readings prior to and during the event as required in our “PRE-EVENT” COVID 19 policy.

  2. Clients agree to complete the exposure to COVID 19 questionnaire prior to attending an event.

  3. Clients agree to abide by all policies set forth in our “DURING EVENT” COVID-19 policy.  If you choose to ride with us to an event, we will ask that you use hand sanitizer prior to entering the van. If you so choose, you may also wear a mask during travel. We will provide masks to those that request one. 

  4. Clients will be required to have a handkerchief, bandana, or some other form of cloth readily available to cover your mouth and nose in the event you need to cough or sneeze.

  5. Clients will be required to wear masks during stops for restroom breaks when required by the community we are traveling through. We also ask that clients reduce their time inside buildings for restroom breaks and to keep interactions with people outside of our group to a minimum and distance themself when possible.

  6. Clients will be encouraged to maintain their personal hygiene, and TNE staff will encourage hand sanitization and hand washing with soap and water when available.

  7. Clients agree to abide by all local, state and outside outfitter rules and regulations regarding COVID 19, this includes all business requirements for social distancing, hand washing/cleaning, and the number of occupants allowed inside a building.

  8. The van is treated with Permasafe for your protection. For more information you can visit the following website or link https://permasafe.com/how-it-works/. Additionally, the van will be wiped down with disinfectant on all high touch surfaces during each stop, after arriving at our destination, and prior to embarking to return home from the event. 

  9. If a client does not feel comfortable carpooling and wants to drive themself, they will be given a refund of 5% of the total event cost (ticket price paid during registration). This does not apply to any group of people not living in the same residence.

  10. When possible clients and staff will maintain a distance of at least 6 feet. We realize this is not a possibility during transport, but we encourage clients to maintain this distance when participating in outdoor events as well as when setting up tents, etc.

  11. Clients should not share tents or other gear including maps, phones, cameras, stoves, food storage devices, luggage, or toiletry kits, food or eating utensils. 

  12. Clients are required to inform a staff member if they feel they are becoming sick, or are experiencing any of the symptoms originally asked in the PRE-EVENT questionnaire.

  13. In the event of a TNE staff member experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, they will remove themself from the group. An alternate means of travel will be made for them so they do not have to travel with the group.

 

While we make every attempt possible to keep our distance and recreate responsibly, we understand that this is not always possible. Ultimately it is up to each client to determine if they are willing to participate in our events.
