ATLAS Ride FAQ

Health & Safety Protocols
COVID-19 Protocols

To ride safely for this year’s ATLAS Ride, we are implementing various protocols following current guidance for events from the CDC, state, city, and other agencies to keep ATLAS participants, volunteers, staff and the amazing people in Lampasas as safe as possible. Our protocols will be reviewed and may be updated as directed by evolving medical information to ensure everyone’s safety.

Texas 4000 has been working with medical advisors, nonprofit event organizers, and other experts to develop our overall safety protocols. We will continue to update them as further information becomes available so that we have the best practices that fit the situation for this year’s ATLAS Ride.

Personal responsibilities will help ensure a safe ATLAS Ride and will be communicated to participants, staff, volunteers, vendors, and sponsors prior to the event in various ways – phone, email, social media and as updates on the ATLAS Ride webpage. These responsibilities and COVID-19 protocols will be explained in detail several times prior to the event and will evolve if the need requires.

Because of the nature of the pandemic and the ever-changing climate, additional changes may be made up to the last minute. All efforts will be made to ensure our participants, staff, volunteers, vendors, and sponsors have the most up to date information available. Here are some protocols which will be in place: 

*  Pre-ATLAS Ride health screening for everyone – staff, participants, and volunteers
*  Face coverings will be required for everyone – riders, volunteers, and staff throughout ATLAS. Riders may remove their masks when out on the road
*  Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the event at registration, higher traffic areas, and in and around portable toilets 
*  ATLAS signage will promote safe physical distancing practices including maintaining 6 feet of distance or more between others
*  Reduced touchpoints to minimize physical interactions
*  Staff and volunteers will be provided PPE and gloves if their role requires additional interaction
*  Dedicated wait spots will be provided to aid in physical distancing in areas where riders gather such as registration, start line, and restrooms.
*  Anyone at increased risk or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 will be directed to stay home
