Fresh air and exercise are important for your physical and mental health. Consider biking, walking or jogging, but avoid doing group activities; contact activities such as basketball or football should be played only with immediate family members. Taking your children or dogs for a walk around the block is safe in less dense areas. Only do outdoor activities with the people in your household and stay 6 feet away from neighbors or others in public areas. It is safe to go to parks that offer enough space for social distancing (staying 6 ft. from other individuals at all times). Visiting crowded parks is not recommended and no one should use playground equipment, it is prohibited because the virus can live on surfaces and be transmitted.
In places where there are no restrictions on the use of local parks, trails, and open spaces, we encourage all users to follow these recommendations:
- Refrain from using parks or trails if they are exhibiting symptoms.
- Follow CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to and during the use of parks or trails.
- Prepare for limited access to public restrooms or water fountains.
- While on trails, warn other users of their presence and as you pass, and step aside to let others pass.
- Follow CDC guidance on the recommended size of social gatherings including outdoor picnicking, pick-up sports and other group hangouts, and maintain proper physical distance at all times.
- Observe CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of 6 feet from other individuals at all times. If this is not possible, users should find an alternate location or depart that space.
- Consult their local and state ordinances and guidelines for the most up to date recommendations on park and trail use.
