The Zoar Outdoor Mitigation and Operations Plan for COVID-19

Moses Rice house with solar pannels

COVID-19 and the risk of viral contamination have fundamentally changed the recreation industry and we have been planning accordingly. As we start looking beyond the immediate crisis, it’s clear people are yearning for human connection. We believe that we can satisfy that need for connection while maintaining a healthy distance from each other. In order to achieve that balance, it’s important to have a clear set of principles, guided by our core values to help us. These are our guiding principles:

  • Be unwavering in our commitment to our team members well-being 
  • Provide an experience that brings people together in a healthy way
  • Commit to doing the right thing

We have done our best to stay true to these principles. For now, here are a few key points we’re focusing on for the start of our season:

  • Private tours and clinics— Until May 30th when you’re traveling as a couple, with the kids, or as friends, you will have a private tour guide all to yourself. While we are grateful for the opportunity to meet friends from all over the world we will do so from a healthy distance.  With the full reopening of Massachusetts, all trips (except the Family Float trips & Paddlesport Instruction) will be open enrollment for multiple booking parties.
  • Reduced trip sizes with multiple launch times— You have the convenience of choosing what time works best for your friends and family and the luxury of smaller, more intimate experiences.
  • A focus on hygiene— Hand washing, strict cleaning and disinfecting measures of common areas such as bathrooms, vehicles, and equipment, and limiting the number of people gathered in outdoor and indoor spaces.
