This came from DOI/BLM. More stupidity.
I asked if this "means we have to wear masks if on the trail"? "Yes, when out of the vehicle. Or in a vehicle with people from different households."
On January 20, 2021, President Biden signed Executive Order (EO) 13991, Protecting the Federal Workforce and Requiring Mask-Wearing, which articulates a policy of halting the spread of COVID-19 by relying on the best available data and science-based public health measures. The EO directs federal agencies to immediately take action, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, to require compliance with the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines with respect to wearing masks, maintaining physical distance, and other public health measures by all persons on public lands. To meet this directive, the BLM is amending your SRP to include a stipulation requiring all persons recreating under your SRP to wear masks and engage in social distancing in accordance with CDC guidelines. The BLM is taking this action in accordance with 43 CFR 2932.56 and the General Terms and Stipulations of your Special Recreation Permit (SRP).
Effective immediately, to promote the health and safety of the public, the following additional stipulation is hereby added to your SRP:
The permittee is responsible for ensuring that all persons covered by this permit, including, but not limited to, agents, clients, customers, participants, and spectators, are complying with the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) guidance concerning wearing masks and maintaining physical distance. This requirement applies when the CDC's guidance concerning wearing masks and maintaining physical distance is in effect.
Pursuant to 43 CFR 2932.41 and the terms of your SRP, you are required to comply with this additional stipulation. Failure to comply may result in the suspension or termination of your permit and could impact your ability to renew your SRP.
Please keep a copy of this email with your SRP Permit 2930-2 form.
