This Plan is subject to revision or discontinuation.
Updated version as of March 22, 2023
The intention of this Illness Operations Plan is to address the guest experience on Arizona Raft Adventures, Grand Canyon Discovery, and Grand Canyon Raft Adventures river trips on the Colorado River through Grand Canyon (collectively, “AzRA”).
Our primary guidance comes from the National Park Service and Public Health, Coconino County Health Department, Arizona Department of Health Services, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We will continue to monitor their websites at least weekly and update this plan as needed.
To mitigate illness on a Grand Canyon raft trip, our primary tools include guest and staff pre-screening, on-river screening, isolation when necessary and to the extent possible, hand washing, sanitation, and staff training.
We acknowledge that trip participants may be asymptomatic and/or unknowingly exposed to illness in the course of their travels. We cannot solve for these challenges.
