California State Parks Remind the Public to Social Distance with their new media campaign, “Flatten the COVID-19 Curve at Parks”.
Now more than ever, State Parks understands the public’s need to enjoy the benefits of nature during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic situation.
Spending time in the outdoors can lead to a number of overall health and wellness benefits like lessening anxiety, boosting creativity and getting vitamin D.
This is why Governor Gavin Newsom’s “Stay at Home” order allows Californians to walk, hike and bike in the outdoors provided that people practice social distancing.
If visitors cannot maintain social distancing of 6 ft. or more when recreating in the outdoors, they need to leave the park.
During these difficult times, protecting park staff, volunteers, partners and visitors from the exposure to coronavirus is critical.
The department is monitoring the coronavirus situation closely and is following guidance provided by the Governor’s Office via the California Department of Public Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services.
