Covid-19 Guidelines for your Visit to Cooper
March 13, 2020
As we are all aware, the Coronavirus is an evolving public health issue affecting people globally and close to home. Ski Cooper wants to assure you that your health, safety and well-being are, as always, of the utmost importance to us.
We are closely monitoring this situation and following guidelines from federal, state and local health officials. Currently there are no known cases of Coronavirus in Lake County. We are taking extra measures to educate staff & guests onsite as well as taking extra care in maintaining clean facilities. It is not a recommendation of the public health experts at Lake County or the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to close at this time. We are open for business as usual.
The CDC recommends that those in high risk populations limit their exposure to others and we appreciate their efforts to do so. High risk populations include people who have recently been on a cruise or visited China, Iran, Italy or South Korea, have been exposed to someone that has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or are displaying symptoms consistent with COVID-19. Colorado health officials are further advising those over the age of 60 and with underlying health conditions not to visit Colorado’s high-country at this time due to the smaller capacity of high-country health care facilities to treat COVID-19 patients if necessary.
We are also requesting that guests and staff take the advice of the CDPHE & the CDC:
- Frequently and thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Use your elbow or sleeve if a tissue is not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay home if you are sick.
- Clean surfaces in your home and clean your personal items such as cell phones using household cleaning products.
- Consider an elbow bump instead of a hug or handshake.
We also understand the difficulty around making advance trip decisions during these uncertain times and we want you to feel confident in doing so. If you purchase a lift ticket or ski school lesson directly with us (this does not include 3rd party bookings) between now and the end of the season, your booking is 100% refundable with no cancellation fee, up to 48 hours prior to planned arrival.
We will continue to update you as we receive guidance and direction from responsible public health officials.
