Stop the spread by staying local

As counties are opening and the weather warms up, it’s a good time to check out a local park or camping area. But don’t get too far out of town — COVID-19 is spreading at different rates in different counties.

Be prepared and mostly self-sufficient when you set out for your local park or camping trip. Since many towns and businesses are not open, or not open to their typical capacity, it may not be as easy as you remember to pick up a jug of water, snacks, or meals along the way. There are no guarantees on the restroom facilities. Bring your own soap, water, hand sanitizer, and toilet paper.

Part of being prepared is making sure the camp or park you are headed to is open before you leave. This blog post from the Washington State Department of Health has tips to help keep everyone safe while you enjoy the outdoors.
