Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) Decision Making and Client Information
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Decision Making and Client Information
Coronavirus is a threat to us all, no matter where we go or what we do. However, SAGE evidence suggests that outdoor activities may present a lower risk of virus transmission. MAS Adventures will base its activities on the following principals:
Course provision will be informed and guided by a public health assessment of risk. (Government advice through PHE, HPS etc.)
We will adhere to government guidance and legal restrictions.
We will use the best available activity-specific evidence and analysis to guide our decision making.
We recognise that there must be a balance between economic growth and the welfare of local communities, society and the environment. We are accountable for fulfilling our civic duty; the actions of an individual must benefit the whole of society.
We will provide clarity to our clients and staff to enable compliance, engagement, and accountability.
We will consider the viability and effectiveness of course delivery options through discussions with our staff and clients.
We will ensure we meet the requirements of our Insurers and follow advice from our Professional Associations. Activities will require a pragmatic and mutually agreed approach between MAS Adventures and our clients. Some objectives may not be feasible. The dynamic nature of being in the outdoors means that there may be occasions when ideal Covid Secure practice (in, for example, social distancing) cannot be maintained e.g. to deal with an immediate safety concern that takes priority.
Clients are asked to agree to the below:
1. To follow relevant home nation Government guidance on Coronavirus, specifically that you will not travel to nor attend an activity with MAS Adventures if you should be self-isolating according to national guidelines. Guidance on the specific symptoms and self-isolation measures are clearly available on the gov.uk website: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
2. To be asked to answer a series of questions from our Medical Questionnaire immediately prior to your course. This will be provided on arrival or sent in advance where applicable.
You can download a copy of the Covid-19 Medical Questionnaire here:
The above is in addition to our Standard Operating Procedures and Current Risk Management.
