The lifting of PAUSE does not mean that we should immediately return to normal activities. The state refers to the next few months as a process of “slowly opening the valve” to avoid a resurgence in cases. As such, ADK will continue to discourage in-person meetings and gatherings until further notice. This applies to outings, group hikes, events, and in-person chapter meetings.
For context, ADK has cancelled all in-person programming through June 30 and all overnight programs through July 23. We are regularly assessing those dates and may need to extend them if conditions change.
