COVID-19 Considerations

No one knows exactly what the world will be like in a few months’ time, as we continue to face a global pandemic. While our hope is to operate our WFR Courses in the same way we did pre-COVID-19, we have careful plans to address the continued public health risks posed by the virus. We will follow scientific expertise and industry standards for hygiene and cleanliness, encourage the use of cautious practices among our staff and guests, and communicate all changes to our policies as we continue to adapt.

Wilderness Medical Associates has a very informative Covid-19 Updates Page, that goes into great detail on how they have been successful with running WFR courses since mid-June. Take a few minutes to learn about their plans, and their currently online extension offerings by clicking here.
