Just in case anyone is interested I just cancelled a Baker EP Permit for this coming Friday.
I just got off the phone with my co-leader and he's on his way to get a covid test so our trip is a no go. He's feeling fine other than having a low grade fever at is work screening this morning but we're certainly not going to be taking any chances. We'll hopefully look to rebook later this season if everything checks out with him.
I’ve got a late August trip coming with 6 college friends. We are all going to get tested before the trip, you have to take a test and get a negative in order to go.
We are requiring a test to go and you are canceling a trip because of a test.
What if he’s negative?! "
He got the test yesterday and was told its a 72 hour turn around time before he'll get his results. That means we won't know until Friday if he's negative. Our entry date is also Friday and we would be driving up Thursday.
Right now all we know is that he had a low grade fever at his daily work screening which requires him to get a test before returning to work. So even if he doesnt have covid something was causing the fever. Since we won't have test results back before our entry the only option is to be cautious and assume he has covid and cancel the trip.
