Covid-19 Update from Skydive Milwaukee

With Wisconsin’s ‘Safer at Home’ order ending and runway maintenance almost complete, our season is scheduled to start May 27th. We look forward to getting back in the air. However, given the current situation with COVID-19, we are putting some additional safety precautions in place. Please be advised that we may check your temperature upon arrival. If your temperature is 100.5 or above, you will be asked to reschedule your skydive. We ask that no spectators or children come with you at this time for the safety of our staff and their families. Please practice social distancing and wash your hands frequently. A face covering is required inside all buildings and on the premises when social distancing of 6 feet cannot be practiced. All jumpers (tandem, student, and experienced) are required to wear a face covering to board our aircraft and required to wear it for the duration of the ride to altitude. The face covering is not required on the skydive or canopy portion of the jump, but will need to be worn upon landing. Commonly touched surfaces will be sanitized throughout the day. Aircraft interiors and grab bars will be sanitized with a commercial disinfectant regularly throughout the day and every evening after jumping has ended. Equipment will be sanitized between uses and we are encouraging everyone to purchase their own goggles if they don't have them already.

If you answer ‘Yes’ to any of the following questions, we’ll gladly reschedule your jump to a different day:
⬜ Have you had a temperature of 100.5 or above at any time over the past four days?
⬜ Have you had a sore throat, difficulty breathing, chills, loss of taste or smell in the past four days?
⬜ Do you have a reason to believe you’ve been exposed to a person with Covid-19 (Coronavirus)?


TANDEM STUDENTS In order to reduce the amount of shared equipment, we will not provide jumpsuits for tandem students at this time. Please come dressed and ready to jump. We are sanitizing goggles between uses, but we recommend that you purchase your own in the office when you check in.


EXPERIENCED JUMPERS:
Student jumpsuits, goggles, and helmets will only be used for solo students and not available to licensed jumpers.
The above guidelines may be modified as necessary. We understand that you may disagree with social distancing and wearing face coverings during this time. We will be more than happy to jump with you when the recommendations for these measures are lifted. We thank you for your patience and cooperation and look forward to a fun and healthy season!
