The spread of Covid-19 created a widespread closure of public lands and recreational facilities across the country. As outdoor spaces reopen, please be sure to be thoughtful and recreate responsibly by continuing to keep social distancing, wash your hands vigorously and frequently, and knowing what’s open and closed before you head out. For additional guidance, see recreateresponsibly.org
Note: As of July 1, 2020, Oregon state requires people ages 12 and older in Oregon to don a mask whenever they’re in a public indoor space. As of July 15, face coverings are also required in outdoor public spaces when social distancing of at least 6 feet is not possible.
