COVID-19 Safety Protocols
These protocols will be reviewed and adjusted based on local health regulations and accepted best practices. Further detailed information will be provided pre-tour to registered riders.
This declaration signed the day before the tour starts, in the starting locale, ensures that we are all arriving healthy, with no Covid-19 symptoms, and without any known exposure to Covid-19 in the preceding 2 weeks.
Our tour staff are trained in Covid-19 hygiene protocols. These protocols include frequent cleaning of high touch surfaces on tour vehicles and equipment. Covid-19 food safety practices as outlined by the Canadian government; including pre-packaged or staff-prepared lunches at our roadside stop. In addition, hand sanitizer is available at all times on our tour vehicles and at our hotels.
During the tour, with the exception of hotel roommates, all staff and cyclists will practice 2m physical distancing, with each other, and with the local population. This action greatly reduces the risk of larger spread within the group, or to a local community from occurring. Where physical distancing is not possible, or when in public indoor spaces, face masks will be worn by all cyclists and staff.
Staff on tour will be supplied with face masks, disposable gloves, and face shields. They will be using these as local regulations require. Participants will be informed of protective equipment they are required to bring as well (such as cloth reusable face masks, and hand sanitizer).
We are discussing with each hotel and restaurant we will be using on tour, regarding their Covid-19 safety measures, and confirming they align with the regional Covid-19 health regulations, as well as our own.
As for all our tours, our staff are prepared with local knowledge of nearby hospitals, clinics, emergency and public health contact information, and in communication with our TDA head office, are ready to assist our cyclists with any medical issue.
