March 17 brings several key announcements regarding what we can do outdoors. This is response to a continue alarming rate of detected cases.
Remember, the “shelter-in-place” still allows for going outdoors IF following strict social-distancing and hand hygiene precautions in sparsely populated areas.
Today, California state parks are closing campgrounds to better “flatten the curve”.
As before, do NOT take children to playgrounds or other frequented areas.
If you do go outside, especially with a child or pet, stay far away from others (6ft) and don’t spend longer outside than necessary.
While it is difficult to have more public areas in nature closed down, it is critical to remember how important these steps are in protecting against the spread. We need to be thankful that these policies are being put in place rapidly!
