Masks on the NRVT continue to be a subject of inquiry. Except in the case of a medical exemption, masks are required when in public and when you cannot maintain 6 feet of distance.  Here are two easy ways to maintain 6 feet on the NRVT:

  • When two people approach each other from the opposite direction, if both move to the edge of the trail, the distance in between will be at least six feet.
  • When a group approaches another person or another group, they too should move to the edge of the trail and go single file until everyone passes.

Have a mask with you to put on in case you encounter people who haven't moved to the edge.
