If you’ve got the urge to get out during these times of social distancing and presure to ‘stay at home,” you’re not alone. And the first place that pops into your mind when you think about where you could go to get fresh air (while still keeping your distance) might be a national or state park.
Wyoming State parks are the latest to shutting services because of Covid-19.
According a message on the official state parks website:
In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, all Wyoming State Park: overnight camping facilities, cabins, yurts, group sites/shelters, showerhouses, some non-essential restrooms, and playgrounds are closed until further notice.
All parks currently remain open for day-use outdoor recreation activities including: trailheads, hiking/biking trails, boat ramps, fishing access, essential restrooms, individual picnic areas/tables. Normal park fees apply; visitors are urged to use fee canisters.
State Historic Sites are closed to the general public until further notice.
While we encourage citizens to enjoy the great outdoors while maintaining social distances, please know the Governor has also urged citizens to stay home whenever possible. This is an ever-changing situation.
According to WyomingNews.com, Visitors can still enjoy Wyoming’s state parks while recreating alone or with family and maintaining the prescribed six feet social distances, gathering in groups less than 10 and following CDC recommended hygiene practices.
