Updated: Jun 28, 2021
UPDATE(Jun 2021): Capacity limits and mask mandates (for those who are vaccinated) have been lifted. We continue to sanitize and maintain a healthy and safe environment as detailed below.
We are looking to phase back into business slowly making sure we do so safely and adhering to Colorado’s “safer at home order” Astro Tours is a much lower risk activity than most events and public spaces that are currently being opened.
Our tours take place outside with plenty of room to distance. There is no contact between guests as we are adamant that no one touches the delicate equipment and telescopes. We provide hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes on all of our tours which guests are requested to use frequently.
We are introducing steps beyond those listed above to help protect our guests and staff such as:
We will no longer serve Tea or Cookies on the tour instead offering only pre-packaged granola bars, snacks and bottled water.
We are limiting the numbers of guests to fewer than ~22 people every tour.
We disinfect all seats and equipment before and after tours.
We always have offered refunds/free-cancellations for any reason but, we are taking this further by refunding and telling guests; Do not come if you have been in contact with anyone who was sick or are feeling sick yourself. We are offering free cancellations to these people as well as: anyone who has changed travel plans/amino compromised/do not feel safe attending/or for any reason at all.
We are spacing telescopes and chairs further apart and setting out extra chairs so households can separate with a few chairs between them. Please maintain a 6ft distance from others.
We require all non-vaccinated guests to wear a mask at all times.
Please be respectful and take all precautions possible to maintain your's and everyone else's health and safety.
We will continue these and any other practices recommended by the city, state, CDC, staff, and guests for as long as necessary to be sure that COVID or any other illnesses are not spreading at our tours.
Although this is a low risk activity any activity at this time has risks. proceed with this tour AT YOUR OWN RISK if you are immune compromised or in a high COVID risk please consider asking about private tours.
To show our gratitude to all of our guests that are sticking with us during this time we are offering tours at a 5% discount. Thank you for your continued support, stay safe and hope to see you soon.
