    It looks like AT shelters in PA may be included in this, but it's not clear. Does anyone know?

    As written it certainly includes the shelters.

    Healthiest state in the nation wv. No Corona. I think I'll stay put. Rumors have it we may have a 2,3 week paid layoff. If that comes to light perhaps I'll head to the dolly sods area tipi Walter style.

    Browsing the Trail journal entries is interesting.

    The NOC just closed. That will be a pain.
    Some have decided to go home, others are wondering if they should go.
    And there are those who will press on.

    Hum, what if the GSMNP and SNP get shut down?

    ATC is requesting you postpone your thru or section hike this year.

    More walking, less talking.

    An update from Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) (Mile 136.7) Restaurant, Lodging and Outfitter Store are closed until March 29. The General Store will remain open to thru-hikers for resupply and mail drops. At this time we can only allow six hikers in the store at a time and will be cleaning and sanitizing the store and bathrooms hourly. Due to the health and safety of our community, no camping is currently allowed on-site, and bathrooms will not be open overnight. Please stay safe and we will keep you updated. https://noc.com/about/covid19

    They also sent this out to those with a current backcountry permit (and perhaps others also.)

    "While backpackers are ordinarily required to stay in the shelter, at this time users are authorized to use a tent outside the shelter to provide for social distancing. It is important that you stay in the area around the shelter, both for your safety and the protection of the resources.

    If you exit the backcountry due to a high fever, dry cough and/or respiratory difficulty, please report that to Park Dispatch at 865-436-1230. For the latest CDC information visit: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus. If you have questions about the shelter information, please contact the Backcountry Office at 865-436-1297."

    Both hostels at 19E were open this weekend, not sure about any future plans.

    According to the Task Force doctors, millennials are the transporters of the virus. Many not knowing they are infected, and show no warnings of the virus. Older people (over 65, and with pre existing conditions) are more in danger. If this continues into Summer, I suspect many parks, services etc. will be closed.

    Wise words. I feel bad for everyone that was planning to hike and now are canceling. Tough but smart and responsible choice.
    If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything.

    I was scheduled to leave in two weeks but given the ATC post today I've postponed. I'm hoping that this will subside over the next 6 weeks and I will be able to head North from Damascus at the beginning of May.

    Default How will coronavirus affect hiking this year?

    I was thinking that a nice long solo would be nice...and then the thought occurred to me that I don't really want to end up sick and alone in a tent in a remote area...nothing good comes from that.

    Yep, there goes bragging rights but hey we were the last state to get infected. Somewhere in my area to eastern panhandle ugh is right. Governor said as of midnight shutting down all restaurants, bars,casino's, which I don't visit them places anyway. Well the occasional restaurant. Our supervisor had a talk with us today and said we can take off but we have to use our leave no questions asked no doc note needed. But he said that could change any minute,to just stay home .

    But if you're solo and in a tent or hammock wouldn't you be fine with no one around to infect ya? If you're home from work paid like a teacher or something perfect chance to go just take everything you need, no resupply no worries.

    Maybe, maybe not. WV was the last state to know they had a case. There hasn't been much testing. Only 84 tests run in WV as of yesterday per Sen. Joe Manchin.

    Yeah, yeah, I know I'm just trying to keep a lil sense of humor about me. I went to the gym yesterday morning there was like 8 people, usually about 30,50 spin classes yoga classes none of that, the one thing I truly enjoy going to the gym. I won't be going back to the gym now I guess until this is over. This sucks so bad what pisses me off the most is the Chinese and there eating habits didn't they learn in 2002 sars outbreak not to eat bats and them wet markets *** . I know they have to feed a billion people but find something other then bat soup .why the world health organization doesn't step in and stop some of these very bad animal handling practices . Maybe the fact that their the second biggest donation behind us. And people that speak up around there well they just disappear.
