California State Parks Press Release
California State Parks today announced the launch of a new social media campaign titled “Flatten the COVID-19 Curve at Parks” to remind the public to practice social distancing when visiting state parks or any outdoor area. The website www.parks.ca.gov/FlattenTheCurve includes important social media messages in English and Spanish that highlight safe ways to enjoy parks, such as not congregating in groups, maintaining a social distance of 6 ft. or more when recreating in the outdoors, and staying home if you are sick.
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.
