For the health of ourselves and our community,

we should all follow all CDC guidelines while enjoying our open spaces:

 

DO

Visit parks that are close to your home.

Traveling long distances to visit a park may contribute to the spread of COVID-19, as:

  • Travel may require you to stop along the way or be in close contact with others with whom you may not otherwise have contact.

  • Travel may also expose you to surfaces contaminated with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

 

Check with the park or recreation area in advance to prepare safely and to find out if the bathroom facilities are open and what services are available.

 

Stay at least 6 feet away from others you don’t live with (“social distancing”) and take other steps to prevent COVID-19.

When visiting parks, beaches, or recreational facilities open for public use, try to protect against exposure to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, by practicing social distancing and everyday steps such as washing hands often and covering coughs and sneezes.

Follow these actions when visiting a park, beach, or recreational facility:

  • Stay at least 6 feet from others at all times. This might make some open areas, trails, and paths better to use than others. Do not go into a crowded area.

  • Avoid gathering with people you don’t live with.

  • Wear a cloth face covering as feasible. Face coverings are most essential in times when social distancing is difficult. Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, can’t move, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • Adults and older children who can safely use hand sanitizer: Use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and rub hands together until dry, if soap and water are not readily available.

 

Carefully consider use of playgrounds, and help children follow guidelines.

In communities where there is ongoing spread of COVID-19, playgrounds can be hard to keep safe because:

  • They are often crowded and could make social distancing difficult;

  • It can be difficult to keep surfaces clean and disinfected;

  • SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, can spread when young children touch contaminated objects, and then touch their eyes, nose, or mouth.

If you choose to visit a playground:

  • Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet away from people you don’t live with.

  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

    • Adults and older children who can safely use hand sanitizer: Use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and rub hands together until dry, if soap and water are not readily available.

  • Wear a cloth face covering, if you can. Cloth face coverings should not be placed on:

    • Children under age 2;

    • Anyone who has trouble breathing;

    • Anyone who is unconscious, can’t move, or is otherwise unable to remove the cloth face covering without assistance.

DON’T

Visit parks if you are sick with, tested positive for COVID-19, or know you were recently exposed to COVID-19.

  • If you are sick with or tested positive for COVID-19, were recently exposed (within 14 days) to someone with COVID-19, or just don’t feel well, do not visit public areas including parks or recreational facilities.

  • Follow recommended steps to take if you are sick.

 

Visit crowded parks.

  • Do not visit parks where you cannot stay at least 6 feet away from people you don’t live with.
