A Note on Staying Safe Outside
Getting outside is deemed an “essential activity” by the Colorado Stay-at-Home order! It IS legal (and essential) to walk, run, and play outside as long as you follow social distancing and do not use playgrounds, picnic shelters, and public restrooms. When outside, please follow these COVID-19 precautions:
- Maintain 6 feet of distance from people who are not in the same household
- avoid visiting busy places
- do not gather in groups
- limit children to playing with family members living under the same roof
- Clean hands thoroughly and often, and avoid touching your face. Take hand sanitizer or a biodegradable soap and water with you (try using a spray bottle or squeeze bottle, like the ones for biking, to wash hands).
While local trails and open spaces for the most part remain open, these places are experiencing higher than usual use, which could negatively impact plants and wildlife or result in closures. Please practice Leave No Trace principles and stay closer to home, rather than driving long distances to recreate outside. It is always best to check online to ensure the trail or open space you plan to visit is not closed due to reasons related to COVID 19, muddy trail conditions, or to protect wildlife.
