COVID 19 Preparation Measures

Outdoor Recreation info

The following tips are based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, Washington State and local public health guidelines and recreation experts:

  • Know Before You Go: Check the status of the place you want to visit. If it is closed, don't go. If it's crowded, have a plan B.
  • Plan Ahead: Prepare for facilities to be closed, pack lunch and bring essentials like hand sanitizer and a face covering. 
  • Stay Close to Home: This is not the time to travel long distances to recreate. Most places are only open for day use. 
  • Practice Physical Distancing: Adventure only with your immediate household. Be prepared to cover your nose and mouth and give others space. If you are sick, stay home.
  • Play It Safe: Slow down and choose lower-risk activities to reduce your risk of injury. Search and rescue operations and health care resources are both strained. 
  • Leave No Trace: Respect public lands and communities and take all your garbage with you.
