As of Wednesday, October 20th, Larimer County will once again be requiring face coverings to be worn in public indoor spaces. See below for details:

"Pursuant to Colorado Revised Statute §§ 25-1-506, 508, and 516, and other applicable law the Public Health Director for the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment has issued a Public Health Order requiring face coverings to be worn in Public Indoor Spaces within Larimer County in order to control and mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to maintain health care capacity in Larimer County. The order requires mask-wearing in all public indoor spaces for all individuals 3 years and older regardless of vaccination status."

"The order is effective Wednesday, October 20 at 12:00 pm. The order will continue until Larimer County has met four required metrics that constitute a “medium” risk score level per our Larimer County COVID-19 Dashboard for 21 consecutive days, or until it is extended, rescinded, superseded, or amended in writing by the Larimer County Public Health Director."

We know that many of you don't enjoy wearing masks while climbing, and we fully understand. However, we have to adhere to the rules, so we'll be requiring masks for all visitors starting Wednesday at noon. We're reviewing all possible options to make your climbing experience at Whetstone as good as it can be. Stay tuned, we'll post new updates should anything else change.
