The mountain rescue service closed via ferrata hiking routes in Slovakia, the hiking.sk website reported.
“We dealt with the gathering of people in one place, then the disinfection of the secure means at the ferrata, the difficulty of moving with a mask and a problem with the rescue of an injured person in a given space,” said Vladimír Šedek, director of the Regional centre Veľká Fatra, as quoted by hiking.sk.
Closed until further notice
However, the measure concerns only the ferrata to Martinské Hole. The other three ferrata hikes in Slovakia, at Skalka, in Liptovské Revúce and in Slovak Paradise, are closed for the season.
