I'm not sure how effective this is but;
Yesterday, while bouldering indoors, I covered my hands, fully in liquid chalk. Front AND back, to my wrists. The idea was to remind me not to touch my face.
I think that being able to see my hand, all white, worked as a flag to make me pause before touching my face. I seemed to work well for me. Maybe it'll work well for you too.
Alcohol based too, it probably works as sanitiser.
But you may have spread the virus from route to route on the holds.
Possibly, but the same is true of anyone doing anything where they may interact with others - any climbing centres, gyms, coffee shops, using a supermarket shopping trolley, opening a door at work and so on. Anyone not self-isolating already is risking unknowingly infecting others.
I forgot to add - one of the symptoms is elevated heart rate. Mine is low, as normal. I wear a Garmin all of the time and always track my resting heart rate.
I know that’s not 100% but it’s an indicator to me.
And this is how it spreads.
An extra-high hand contact activity, saying it is no worse than other activities and relying on a heartrate monitor.
Frankly, we're f*cked.
I’ll do that next time I’m in Asda.
While this is a fair point, I'm now working from home, I am avoiding groups of people and do not intend to go climbing indoors anytime soon.
There's always a point when it switches from OK to NOT OK. How would someone define exactly when that change is (other than direction from above)?
Last week was last week, when there was no advice from the government to restrict anything.
The return of large numbers of people to national parks and other upland areas in England has brought a spike in littering, wildfires and mountain rescue incidents. Some issues appear to be worse than during equivalent periods in past years.
