New Curfews, Stay-at-home and Travel Advisories

From Peggy Koesel. CHC President

We have received email from a number of well-respected CHC members suggesting that we consider suspending hiking, particularly because there are curfews, stay-at-home and travel advisories in Summit, Medina and Cuyahoga Counties.

It does not appear that these advisories presently prohibit outdoor activities. Still, the Governor or local authorities may place further limits on activities. If there are expanded curfews, additional or further limits on gathering size and/or limits are placed on outdoor activities, we may have to suspend CHC hiking.

In the meantime, we expect every member to follow the Responsible Hiking Guidelines every day, on every hike. We do so out of respect for each other, for health care and other essential workers, and for our friends and neighbors in the communities where we hike. Please take care.

Responsible Hiking Guidelines

In response to the coronavirus (Covid-19), the Governor of the State of Ohio declared a state of emergency.  The State of Ohio, local governments and park districts have imposed certain restrictions on activities in their respective jurisdictions, including gathering size and social proximity.

Until all restrictions on gathering size and proximity are lifted, hike leaders and hikers are responsible to hike in compliance with the Responsible Hiking Guidelines.
