MERSEYSIDE NATURALISTS’ ASSOCIATION - Taking part in COVID-safe walks

Information for MNA Members

Due to COVID-19 we have to change the way MNA group walks are organised. By taking a few extra measures, we can keep each other safe.

We are limiting the number of people on our walks. Contact the walk leader directly to confirm your place.  If things change and you can’t make it, please cancel your place, or let the walk leader know as soon as possible.

Before the walk

  • Check for symptoms

If you have any COVID-19 symptoms (a high temperature; a new, continuous cough; a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste) you must not attend the MNA walk.

  • Clothing and what to take

Wear suitable clothing and footwear for the conditions. 

Bring your own food and plenty of water. 

You may want to bring your own alcohol-based hand sanitiser, face covering and basic first aid kit. 

We recommend that the walk leader also brings a first aid kit, but for minor incidents it may be better to use your own.

 

On the walk

Follow the government guidelines on physical distancing

  • Register your attendance

Provide the MNA walk leader with your contact details to support NHS contact tracing. 

  • Avoid touching gates and stiles where possible

 If you do – wash your hands as soon as you can. We recommend carrying alcohol-based hand sanitiser.    

  •  Do not share food & drink, or equipment such as walking poles/binoculars 

 

Walk responsibly

When other walkers are passing, remember to stand back and give way. Let the walk leader know if you are having problems, feel unwell, or need to slow down or stop. 

 

After the walk

  •  If you have symptoms

If you develop symptoms after the walk, apply for a COVID-19 test and support NHS contact tracing if requested.
