Our Reopening Guidelines


​Dear Friends,

Our biggest priority remains to be proactive to help control the spread of this illness for the wellbeing of our community, program participants, and staff. In addition to our normal operating standards, we increased sanitization and operating policies in line with guidelines issued by government authorities, the CDC, and the Southeastern Utah Health Department. We also included input from the National Park Service, Utah Guides and Outfitters Association, and American Camp Association (to name just a few!)

 If you visit our office:

  • Use the hand sanitizer located outside our office doors prior to entering
  • Please wear a mask while in our office
  • Keep a 6-foot distance from others as much as possible
  • Be prepared to have your temperature taken and fill out a short symptom screening questionnaire

CFI will operate with:

  • Reduced group sizes
  • Special sanitization and distancing efforts in vehicles, on boats, with gear and educational supplies, and generally throughout programs
  • Increased accessibility to hand wash and sanitizer opportunities
  • CFI staff participating in Moab Regional Hospital’s COVID-19 “Routine Asymptomatic Screening” testing program with nasal swab and/or antibody testing before programs 
  • Participants and CFI staff must complete a symptom screening questionnaire each day before trips
  • Participants and CFI staff will wear masks around group gear and each other

CFI’s mission to connect people of all ages with nature and to develop skills related to self-awareness and positive relationships is critical as we navigate the challenges ahead. Together, with each other’s support, we will make it through this unsettling time and continue to explore and care for the Colorado Plateau.
