Remember that science is not facts, science is learning.
And scientists learn more about coronavirus and its variants every day. They’ll learn even more tomorrow.
Until they give the “all-clear” signal, we should…
- Wear a mask in public to protect yourself and others
- Maintain social distancing to reduce exposure to the virus
- Wash your hands often to protect yourself and your family
- Get vaccinated as soon as we can
- Use the bathroom in your camper, if you have one
- Keep six feet between you and other campers
- Avoid areas that don’t offer safe distancing
- Respect others’ ability to social distance
- Avoid hugs, handshakes and large gatherings
- Limit groups to 10 or fewer
- Dispose of trash in dumpsters
- Avoid using campground laundry facilities
- Do not touch other campers’ laundry
- Restroom closures will be more frequent than usual
- Use shower facilities another time if they are busy
- Wait outside occupied facilities and stand six feet apart while waiting
- Stay home if you feel sick.
- Return home if you exhibit symptoms.
