ONCE IN THE REFUGE


A number of new standards for the conduct and operation of the refuges have been
established. All of them, like the ones mentioned above, are based on the current crisis
COVID19, the new measures of physical distance and hygiene that need to be taken
and the sustainability of mountain shelters.
We ask the mountain community to help us comply with them. It is everyone's
responsibility to ensure that mountain refuges can function properly despite this bad
situation in which we find ourselves.
Some of these measures are:
- It is important to maintain the minimum distance and cleanliness measures in our stay
in the refuge.
- Upon arrival at the refuge, it will be necessary to disinfect backpacks and hiking
boots.
- It will not be possible to use the lockers room to leave the backpacks, they must be
brought up to the rooms.
- Leaving from the refuge in the morning, due to the cleaning and disinfection we have
to do, it won’t be possible to leave anything inside the refuge.
- Limited capacity has been established in all the common spaces of the refuge: dining
room, terrace, toilets, ... These capacity will be indicated by signs at the entrance to
each of these spaces. It is everyone's responsibility to fulfill them.
- The refuge's accommodation capacity has been limited.
- It will be necessary to clean the hands with hydroalcoholic gel before each breakfast,
lunch or dinner service.
- We must always attend to the instructions of the guard before these food services,
since the distribution of the dining tables will be conditioned to the typology of the
groups of guests. The groups that come together to the refuge will sit down to eat
together.
- Both the guard and different posters throughout the refuge will be informed of the
protocols and necessary measures to fulfill.
