INYO COUNTY, CA, March 21, 2020 - The Inyo County Sheriff's Office, on
behalf of Inyo County Search and  Rescue (SAR), requests that people do not
take part in high risk outdoor activities at this time. Activities include
backpacking, climbing, peak bagging, backcountry skiing, or anything that
puts you at risk for potential rescue.

If you get sick, lost or injured and require SAR assistance, the responding
team of volunteers will have to break social distancing and State mandated
isolation by sharing rescue equipment, radios, and vehicles. You will be
potentially taking those rescuers out of service for weeks due to
post-mission quarantine protocols. In addition, many SAR teams, including
ours, are operating at a diminished capacity due to many members
self-isolating and not responding to operations due to age or other risk

Your preventable backcountry injury will also stress ambulance and emergency
room services. It is highly unlikely helicopters are available to assist in
your rescue. Inyo County Sheriff's Office DOES NOT own or operate any air
assets, and our allied agency helicopters are currently operating at a very
limited capacity.

The public can access the complete Inyo County Order, issued March 20, 2020
