Pennsylvania will lift all Covid-19 restrictions, except for the order to wear a mask in public, on Memorial Day, May 31.
The LWA Board has decided that ride participant numbers will no longer be limited to 12. However, it is strongly recommended that the practice be continued, and that additional ride leaders and separate groups be provided when the number reaches 12+.
Rider total will be posted at the Ride Leader's discretion/comfort level.
Remember -- The virus has not disappeared. Not all are able or wish to be vaccinated. With that in mind:
- Continue to bring a mask to wear for entry into commercial establishments at rest stops, and to protect the unvaccinated when not social distancing.
- Please stay home or ride solo if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, have tested positive for COVID-19, or have been recently exposed to someone that has COVID-19.
- If you develop symptoms or test positive within a week of a group ride, please contact a Board member for contact tracing efforts.
