The following guidelines concerning recommendations for mountain sports during Covid-19 are adapted from those originally produced by the German Alpine Club (DAV) on 5 May. The guidance falls closely in line with that of the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC), and indeed other UIAA member associations, released at a similar time. The UIAA has adapted some of the advice to provide general international guidelines.

The advice detailed in this article has been endorsed by the UIAA Medical and UIAA Mountaineering Commissions for countries, regions or states where these measures have been approved or consented by competent government or regional authorities.
