Covid Guidelines and Procedures

Here at Jackson Hole Vintage Adventures (JHVA) we strive to provide memorable experiences while keeping the health and safety of our guests and employees our top priority.  We consider ourselves leaders within the river industry in Jackson Hole. In developing our covid guidelines and procedures during this pandemic, we have considered the recommendations of the CDC, as well as all health orders put forth by Teton County, WY.  No matter how diligent our efforts, it is impossible to ensure that a river trip will be 100% free of sources of infection. We reserve the right to reserve service to those who will not abide by our protocols, and kindly ask that our guests make responsible decisions regarding the health and safety of themselves and our staff, and respect all of the guidelines that we have developed.

 

Booking and Pre-Trip Communication

  • All JHVA staff must complete a health screening and temperature check upon arriving for their trip.
  • We are limiting trips to single families, and small groups traveling together. We are not offering river trips for large groups of unrelated parties at this time.
  • At the time of booking, guests are informed about the mask wearing requirements during their trip. Masks are required to be worn, properly, at all times that guests and staff are physically unable to maintain a social distance of six feet.  Masks are available upon request.
  • Upon arriving at the predetermined time and meeting location guests will meet their guides and shuttle drivers, and are required to undergo a temperature check before completing our assumption of risk form, and shuttle release and indemnity agreement.  If there are any detectable signs of infection, the party will not be permitted to participate in their river experience.

 

Transportation

  • JHVA staff is no longer providing transportation of guests under any circumstances. Guests are responsible for their transportation to the meeting location (Stilson Lot / The Teton Village Transit Center).
  • A river experience with JHVA now includes the shuttling of guest vehicles by JHVA staff.  While guests are on the river, JHVA staff (while wearing masks/ gloves) will move the guest’s vehicle(s) to Tipi Camp, where they then sanitize any surfaces in the vehicle that were touched during the shuttle.

 

On the River

  • Guests must wear a properly fitted facial covering that covers the nose and the mouth for the entire river float.
  • When possible, we request that guests sit in the front row of seats in the boat.
  • Sanitation kits including hand sanitizer, surface sanitizer, masks and gloves are available upon request throughout your entire experience with JHVA.

 

Sanitation Procedures in Tipi Camp

  • Additional hand wash stations for guest use have been installed in Tipi Camp to promote good hygiene. 
  • All river equipment used on each trip is sanitized in between uses, including but not limited to: binoculars, life jackets, blankets, coolers, clipboards and pens.
  • All surfaces are sanitized, and all blankets that are used in camp are switched out between trips.
  • Kitchen staff wear gloves and masks, and follow all current food safety guidelines when preparing and serving food for guests.
  • Staff only busses dishes after guests have left the area. Guests are welcome to bus their own dishes if they prefer. Bus tubs are available upon request.
  • JHVA staff will not enter a tipi while guests are present inside the tipi.
