Effective August 27, 2021, masks are required in outdoor settings where physical distancing is not possible, whether vaccinated or not. Read more about Statewide mask requirements and recommendations >>
Most parks and trails are open where there’s enough space to recreate safely. However, some other closures have not ended yet.
Many playgrounds and ball courts are open. Overnight camping (in season) is available in some state parks and on public lands.
Because some parks are still closed or have reduced services, you should check before heading out.
When You Go Out
If you are healthy, it is okay to be outdoors with members of your household, but it's important to keep a safe distance from anyone you don't live with. Remember to:
- Bring and wear face coverings, particularly if you are not fully vaccinated or if it's not possible to maintain physical distance
- Wash hands often and bring hand sanitizer
- Stay local
- Avoid crowded spaces and trails
- Keep at least 6 feet away others not part of your household
- Outdoor games with those you live with are okay
- Announce your presence to others and step aside to let others pass
- Keep 6 feet from others. If that's not possible, go someplace else.
- Be prepared for limited access to public restrooms and no operating water fountain
