Notification is still there

10 minutes after your post it's still there. You must have missed something?
Thanks for checking on this and keeping up the posts about Deso.
I have a launch early June so following for sure.
Also a May Chama. We'll see.

Well, that is strange. I refreshed the page and still did not see it, oh well it's back, thanks for double checking me
Yep, kinda the catch phrase for everything, "We'll see...."

So I'm curious why Westwater is closed, but Ruby Horsethief is not.
Would it be cuz there's more chance to F up in WW and need a rescue?

Ruby is in Colorado and Westwater is in Utah. They are managed by different offices in different states so they are under different orders. Utah, and especially the Moab area, are being much stricter about health orders and such.

At the end of the day BLM land as a whole is managed federally...but each management area makes its own decisions... the Moab BLM office has decided to mirror the state health orders... but the Price, Vernal and McKinnis National Conservation Area that Ruby falls within (and who's offices reside in Grand Junctionm CO) have decided to remain open while urging people to take precautionary actions and take local and state level restrictions into consideration when planning trips.

IMHO, we are closer to stay at home and other health orders being relaxed then we are to them staying for longer...so closing things now is a bit of "too little too late" if they were gonna do it and its better to just stay the course they have been on. My gut feeling, which I'll admit could be wrong, is that we'll start to see a lot of restrictions loosened starting in May and that, pending what happens, most of the restrictions will be gone by June. That is the hope at least... but it will be largely down to what happens as things relax and if there is a resurgence of cases when that happens.

After hearing about the Phase approach presented today, at least 29 states will start loosening restrictions somewhat by or around May 1. The curve of new cases is rolling over right now, almost to date what was predicted quite a while ago ( Doom porn aside ) and will fall off as rapidly as it increased in the past weeks.

My hope is that Jaredopolis decides to let it be up to the counties to decide more after May 1 and not dictate the whole state suffer for the Front Range overpopulation / virus problem.

Then, all that's needed is for people traveling to recreation areas to be considerate and still keep their distance and wear masks when around service people they come across along the way.

I started wearing a mask in the grocery store. Not because I am afraid of catching it, but because I didn't want anyone to be afraid of me.

Perhaps someone more discerning than me or the powers that be can clarify this:

May 4 - situational update, case numbers for Carbon, Emery and Grand Counties

May 1 - joint statement from Moab Regional Hospital and SEUHD

April 30 - Grand County amended Public Health Order

April 30 - Carbon & Emery counties

April 27.....

Best bet would be to call River Runners in Vernal and see if they are open for business or not. I called my trip off because I couldn't get through to them on Monday. Our group has a launch date next month we are shooting for. Good luck. So much for two Deso trips for me this Spring.

This is the current notice on Rec.gov (5/7). The restrictions for locals only has been removed from earlier notices. I believe that the Grand County portion is on river left (but no camping there anyway) so not an issue. Please correct me if I'm wrong on this. Next step is to find out if there are any camp size restrictions. FYI-

ALERT: Updated Health Order

The South Eastern Utah Health District (SEUHD) has released an ammended health order that effects the Grand County Portion of Desolation Gray - Green River Permit. Please visit and review the South Eastern Utah Health Department (SEUHD) website for any restricitions and information concerning COVID-19 regarding camping in the Grand County Portion of the Desolation Gray - Green River Permit.

At this time, the BLM has not closed the Desolation Gray-Green River or cancelled any permits.
