Corona virus effects on Launches?

Hey guys, so I work at a ski resort in Colorado and currently our administration is reacting to any potential Corona issues by canceling a lot of events and closing things down.

Does anyone have any information or rumors on whether or not permits will be affected? As far as allowing people to access the rivers?

Honestly if they start shutting everything down, Iím headed to the river. Perfect place to get away from all of it.

Don't give them any ideas.

River trips are small group and outside which limits exposure. Don't make out with your buddies in the kitchen and wash your hands. If someone is coughing , take them off kitchen duty, per usual and you might not want to share a tent. Norovirus is a bigger threat on the river.

I mean, yes! Cancel your permits while you can get your money back!

Thank god we have the bestest and greatest leader the world has ever seen...... running this reality TV show.......It's a political hoax I tell ya. The Dems are behind this......it's all fake news. Vote MAGA and it will all be gone in a few weeks.

(anyone have a roll of toilet paper I can borrow???)

Apparently, in the post apocalyptic world, a roll of toilet paper will be the currency of choice. WHo knew?

It is an interesting glimpse into how rapidly stooopid things will get if something actually bad ever happens.

As for rumors....I heard in China, 10 days after dying from the virus, the victims start coming back to life and shuffling around the streets, eating rats. So bring that AR 15 on your river trips for that possibility, too. There was a OARS commercial trip that went sick and then missing down in the Grand Canyon last week...so be ready. Truth!

I'm floating the Salt in two weeks, driving down from Wyoming. I'm concerned that Governors will call out the National Guard to block roads while I'm down there, and I won't be able to get home.

A valid concern in my opinion. Travel restrictions are already in play.

I think you'll have problems leaving the state instead of returning home. At least you have a couple of weeks to watch the situation unfold. I feel for you and anyone else with near future travel plans. Good luck buzzards.

I heard the coronavirus was attached to successful Yampa launch emails for trips between June 22 and July 10. I recommend dropping them today.






JK...but watching rec.gov...

I agree. An abundance of caution now is much better than an abundance of regret later. These aren't firm numbers but potentially over 5x more contagious, 5x more latent and 5x the mortality of the common flu in my age group is a bug not to trivialize.
