Mountain sports recommendations of the "Alpenverein Österreich" for summer 2020
In general there are no restrictions on the hiking and bike trails. If you encounter other hikers or bikers, please keep a safe distance of at least 1 metre. So you protect yourself and others. The Verband alpiner Vereine für Österreich (VAVÖ, austrian alpine association) has developed recommendations for the practice of alpine sports in COVID-19 times:
1. Reduce risk-taking
Stay below the personal performance limit during alpine activities. Consider the corona-related risks and difficulties in rescue operations, as well as the additional burden on the hospitals. More than ever, the rule is: only healthy in the mountains!
2. Keep a distance of at least 1 metre
Wear a face mask to protect mouth and nose if the minimum distance of 1 metre must be exceeded. Certain mountain sports activities (e.g. mountain biking) may also require larger distances.
3. Mountain sports only in small groups
The actual number of people depends on the respective mountain sport. There is an upper limit of 10 people. Keep in mind that as group size increases, it will be more difficult to keep your distance! Avoid high-traffic tours and places.
4. Avoid habitual mountain rituals
For example, shaking hands, hugs, summit kiss, offering drinking bottles to others, etc.
5. Take mouth-nose protection and disinfectants with you
In addition to the general emergency equipment, mouth-and-nose protection and disinfectants should be kept in the backpack.
6. In an emergency, as usual ...
... act as a first aider according to the generally applicable first aid guidelines and additionally use mouth-and-nose mask.

Mountain hiking is usually a pretty safe sport and emergency cases are highly rare. But still, you can not preclude happenings such as sudden health problems or getting into bad weather or thunder storms, where you might need immidiate help.
The SOS-system for mountain hikers in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis rests on two columns. Column number one is the hiking map, which you can find inside of the hiking guide. In this map you will find all important signposts with the related numbers. The second column is the SOS-signpost in the terrain itself, on which emergency signs got affixed this spring.
The whole region contains about 500 of these signs, which are provided with green-white labels. These signs show the number of the signposts, the telephone number of the mountain rescue service and the telephone number of the international rescue service, the map datum, the GPScoordinates and the current height above the sea level.
If an emergency situation appears, you can dial the emergency number with your cellphone and give out information about the GPS-coordinates and the map datum (for example: WGS 84). This allows them to find your current position with centimetre precision and the rescue service does not loose any time by searching for an inaccurate declared position.
