Welcome to the Facility and you can use the outdoor arena and round pen at this time ONLY!

  • If you or someone in your household has had a fever or cough or known COVID-19 exposure, do not come to the FACILIITY until you have self-quarantined for 2 weeks or tested negative and been released by a medical professional.
  • Respect the 6 foot distance to other people.
  • Plan to be efficient while at the FACILITY and not linger.
  • Consider your personal risk level and whether coming to a communal place is an appropriate risk for you.
  • Prepare for the possibility of you becoming infected and unable to come to FACILITY. 
  • On entering the facility, do not touch any door handles unless you have pre-wiped your hands with approved disinfectant. Go directly to the bathroom to wash your hands with soap and running water for 20 seconds. This is the best prevention, perhaps better than alcohol-based hand gel. Any bathroom door, sink and toilet handles should be wiped daily at minimum. The bathroom doors should be left ajar so as to not need to use  the handles. If you do touch the handles before sanitizing, wipe the handles as you leave.
  • Keep spray bottles of diluted bleach handy for disinfecting. 1-2T/quart
  • Consider limiting the number of riders in your arena remembering that the virus can stay in the air up to 3 hours. 4 RIDERS MAX IN OUTDOOR ARENA.
  • Tack, including whips, should be used by their respective rider only. Store in your private tack area. Minimize or eliminate using any communal equipment.
  • Disinfect shared radio devices between uses. Place the device far from your face. Do not use shared ear devices.
  • Remember that gloves are vectors for viral spread and virus can live several days on cloth. We all often wipe our nose on our riding gloves or sleeves. Be conscious and try to avoid this, carry Kleenex or take off your gloves after you ride, hand wash again, wash the gloves at home that night or store them in a private area like your trailer.  Cloth rags once used should be washed in laundry.
    • Common sites include
      • Door knobs of tackrooms, bathrooms, and stalls
      • Light switches
      • Wash rack handle/sprayer
      • Pitch forks/ brooms/shovel handles/wheelbarrows.
  • Dirt should be removed first with soap and water, then disinfected with purchased effective wipes or a spray bottle, saturated rag or paper towel containing effective solution. Disposable gloves should be worn to protect the person disinfecting.
  • Remove all shared food in tack rooms.
  • If stall cleaners come to your barn, ensure these rules apply to them. Consider providing them with sets of tools and wheelbarrows dedicated just to them, a separate set dedicated to barn boarders. Ensure them you are caring for them as well.
  • The virus can survive on cardboard 24 hrs, copper 4 hrs, 2-3 days on plastic and stainless steel. The virus can hang out in air droplets for up to 3 hours but usually falls to the ground more quickly.
  • Wearing gloves may protect you but they still spread the virus if used surface to surface.
  • There is no evidence that COVID-19 is transferred to our pets, but handwashing before and after is encouraged.
  • Solutions containing either 60-70% alcohol, or hydrogen peroxide or bleach (5T per gallon) are effective in disinfecting. Disinfecting will “kill” the virus, sanitizing is meant to reduce the number of virus. Non alcohol-based hand sanitizers that contain benzalkonium chloride are not as effective as alcohol. Hand washing is preferred because soap removes dirt and binds the germs, physically removes them with rubbing your hands together and running water washes them down the drain.
  • Effective also are EPA approved emerging viral disinfectants—hospital grade. https:// www.epa.gov/pesticide-registration/list-n-disinfectants-use-against-sars-cov-2
  • Clinical signs of COVID-19 appear 2-14 days after exposure but not everyone will show clinical signs.
  • High risk patients: Over the age of 60, chronic illness such as cancer or immunosuppression, heart, lung and or kidney disease, diabetes, pregnant or postpartum within 2 weeks of delivery, BMI >40

HINT - Think that your facility is on “strangles protocol”, but with the humans having strangles…
