Unless you are 70+ or have an underlying health condition (diabetes, CHD, high blood pressure, immunocompromised), it's unlikely you'll have a serious complication. Even at 70-79 years, it's in ~8% case fatality rate. Given your activity level, I suspect you are pretty healthy. Bring a personal locator beacon, as we all should for other potential injuries. For piece of mind, you could keep any eye on your temperature.

p.s. From an exposure perspective I'd rather be in the backcountry than sitting in SF, where I am now. :)

I live in a fairly rural area in eastern Washington state... our numbers currently are as follows:
Confirmed Cases by Age Number Updated
Under 20 805/04/2020
20-39 3405/04/2020
40-59 3205/04/2020
60-79 1705/04/2020
Over 80 105/04/2020
TOTAL 9205/04/2020



Kinda seems like it’s a pretty even split for the so called younger and not so younger demographics. So far nobody has passed away according to our local health department where I got these numbers. Things change pretty quick and that potentially would include the virus as well.
