This (among other things) is from the Vermont Ski Resort COVID-19 Winter Operations Guidance at https://accd.vermont.gov/content/vermont-ski-resort-covid-19-winter-operations-guidance:
"Resorts should collect names, phone numbers, email addresses and addresses in electronic form of all users of a day-use lodge, when they used the lodge, and where they sat, and retain the list for 30 days."
So when you go to the bathroom the COVID police will be documenting which toilet, urinal, or sink you used?
Don't be surprised if some ski areas just say to heck with it and don't open.
Just don't go in the lodge. Car..ski..car
And what the hell are ski resorts/Vermont supposed to do with that data other than contact tracing if they find out that you test positive or something? Seems way too extra. I know I’ve said it before, but be smart, wear a mask, and keep your distance. That’s what matters this season.
That's EXACTLY what they do with it, well, what the state will do with it anyway. It's not extra, it's the bare minimum of what you do if you want to track and control a highly contagious person-to-person transmitted disease. JFC, it's not like they're asking for the world here, it's the same standard most other non-retail businesses in the state are already held to.
I agree with pretty much everything they're expected to collect other than the "where they sat" part. Not quite sure how you track that one.
There was a point that I was interested in buying a pass. But, after granting me an exception to the renewal deadline, they NEVER get back to me to answer my question.I think many skiers will be feeling this way as well and just won't bother this season.
