COVID Information for Pedal the G.A.P.
Update - July 8, 2021
A LOT has changed since we first wrote the COVID policy for this trip. Here's the latest.
* EVERYONE should bring TWO masks with them (so you can lose one of them, as I always do!)
• If you are taking Amtrak from NYC to Pittsburgh, they will require you to wear a mask onboard. (I believe that the airlines and bus companies are doing the same.)
* You are not required to wear a mask in the campground or when you are riding.
* HOWEVER... if I understand the current CDC guidelines, you are not required to wear a mask in a store if you are fully vaccinated UNLESS THE STORE OWNER REQUIRES IT. That means that you should keep a mask with you on the bike at all times. You would hate to pull up on a yummy snack store and find out that they won't let you in because you don't have a mask with you.
* I'm GUESSING that we will have some people on the trip who will choose to wear a mask most of the time. Intelligent people can disagree, and we're all going to show friendly respect for those who may have opinions different than our own.
