Following its online meeting held on 7 December, the UIAA Covid-19 Committee is recommending the following guidelines.
While the Covid-19 situation continues to be complex and different from region to region, the UIAA – International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation – recommends that its members continue to encourage climbers and mountaineers to:
Benefit from national Covid-19 vaccination and booster programmes.
- Adhere to all prevailing national and regional Covid-19 rules and regulations.
- Comply with all preventive measures – whether in the mountains or in dedicated facilities (social distancing, downloading Covid passports or apps, not mixing with other people or groups unless in full compliance with the rules in place).
- Keep climbing and mountaineering responsibly.
- Furthermore, the UIAA recommends that its members continue to promote national vaccination programmes, Covid-19 resources, and related access information.
