Maintain at least 6 feet separation from others not within the individual’s group at the park, beach, river, or lake. The individual’s group may not exceed the greater of the individual’s household or up to 5 individuals who go to the park, beach, river, or lake together. If such distancing is not feasible, other measures such as face covering, hand hygiene, cough etiquette, cleanliness, and sanitation should be rigorously practiced.
Self-screen before going to a park, beach, or other public open space for any of the following new or worsening signs or symptoms of possible COVID-19:
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Repeated shaking with chills
Loss of taste or smell
Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit
Known close contact with a person who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19
Wash or disinfect hands after any interaction with employees, other customers, or items in the park, beach, river, or lake.
Consistent with the actions taken by many individuals across the state, consider wearing cloth face coverings (over the nose and mouth) at a park, beach, river, or lake when within 6 feet of another person who is not a member of the individual’s group. The individual’s group may not exceed the greater of the individual’s household or up to 5 individuals who arrived at the park, beach, river, or lake together. If available, individuals should consider wearing non-medical grade face masks. Face coverings may not be feasible while in the water.
Clean and sanitize recreational water equipment before and after use.
Special consideration for river rafting and similar activities:
Any vehicle used to transport individuals between places along the river must be cleaned and disinfected between uses.
If such a vehicle is a bus, alternate rows should be used.
Individuals should not sit within 6 feet of any other person not with the individual’s group.
Individuals should sanitize hands before getting onto such a vehicle.
Face coverings are strongly recommended while on the vehicle.
Individuals aged 65 or older are at a higher risk of COVID-19. To the extent possible, avoid contact within 6 feet with individuals aged 65 and older. Individuals aged 65 and older should stay at home as much as possible.
