Outdoor recreation is exempt from Montana’s stay-home order, but don’t go too far | Montana Untamed

On Friday, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks announced changes to allowable activities at some of its recreation areas.

“It doesn’t look like we’ll be closing sites completely – it’ll be a little more precise than that,” said FWP spokesman Greg Lemon. “It’ll be things like you might not be able to camp, but you’ll still be able to use sites for day-use.”

State parks, fishing access sites and wildlife management areas remain open with the following restrictions:

  • Overnight camping will not be allowed. Campgrounds will be systematically closed, giving current campers 72-hour notice.
  • Group use sites will be closed, including playgrounds.
  • Visitor center closures will be extended at least through April 10.
  • Bathrooms at many locations will be limited due to public and employee safety concerns, because of the current lack of personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies. Sites will be regularly patrolled by enforcement staff.
  • Specific sites may close to address groups gathering, public health and safety, FWP employee safety or resource damage.

With the governor’s new order, FWP has fielded phone calls from people asking many different questions, including whether restrictions in other states could come to Montana. For example, the state of Washington prohibited fishing to limit the spread of COVID-19, but Montana has had no such discussions, Lemon said.

How the governor’s stay-at-home order applies to outdoor recreation

Gov. Jared Polis last week imposed a stay-at-home order for Coloradans due to the coronavirus, but added that outdoor exercise is still allowed as an “essential” activity. He also urged Coloradans to recreate in communities close to where they live.

“Our mountains and our canyons have been here for hundreds of thousands of years, and they’re going to be here for hundreds of thousands of years,” Polis said. “So wait until this blows over to enjoy them.”

Here are answers to some of the questions that have arisen since the order was issued:

Is outdoor exercise allowed under the stay-at-home order?

Not only is it allowed, it is encouraged. The governor has been consistent about that since the beginning of the crisis because of the physical and mental health benefits associated with exercise. He has, however, suggested people cut back on their outdoor exercise and mix in indoor exercise alternatives on occasion. “Stop putting yourself and others at risk,” Polis said. “Of course, maintain your physical fitness, and engage as you need in physical activity. But please, be careful and judicious.”

If I live in Denver, may I go to the mountains to recreate?

“If you live in a city, you certainly shouldn’t be leaving your city to recreate,” Polis said. “You should use your municipal parks at off-hours. I’ve encouraged municipalities to expand the hours of operation of those parks to further spread it out. It also generally will mean recreating less during this crisis.”

If I live outside of Denver, may I leave my town or county to recreate?

People should recreate near where they live, Polis insisted. While acknowledging that means different things to different people depending on where they live, he strongly discouraged people living in the Front Range from visiting the mountains. “Just because you’re not working, this doesn’t mean it’s vacation,” Polis said. “It’s not the time to drive two or three hours from Denver to mountain communities, many of which are reeling from the crisis. Let me add, that is really dumb, because those communities have a higher rate of infection than where you live. So the last thing you should want to do is drive to your second residence, or a hotel, or a cabin in the mountains.”

Which types of outdoor recreation are allowed?

Individual exercise is OK but participating in group activities is not. Denver Parks have closed basketball and tennis courts. Playgrounds are closed.

Maintaining social distancing and avoiding groups is mandatory. “People shouldn’t be playing in groups,” Polis said. “Basketball, as an example. You can play one on one with a housemate, but not full-team basketball. Frisbee, again, with a housemate, but not Frisbee tag or ultimate (Frisbee). It’s about using common sense to try to engage in the necessary recreation you need, as close to home as possible.”

Catskill Recreation Center: State-of-the-Art Swimming and Exercise Facility

The Catskill Recreation Center (CRC) is a not-for-profit organization with a state-of-the-art swimming pool and exercise facility located in Arkville, NY (on County Highway 38 between State Routes 28 and 30).
CRC provides affordable recreational opportunities to the community and is the “go-to place” for fitness, friendships, and fun. We offer a diverse array of swimming and fitness classes, family and youth programs, personal training, and American Red Cross instruction.

While membership has grown steadily, membership fees cover less than half of the operating expenses; therefore, the Catskill Recreation Center relies on generous individual donations and grant awards to keep the doors open.

Given the resounding and immeasurable benefits that the Catskill Recreation Center has had in the greater community, we ask you to make a donation to the CRC to help us sustain and expand our programming, so we can continue to serve the well-being and recreational interests of both youth and adults in this area.

In order to maintain a safe environment in our staff, members, the community at large and to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19, the Catskill Recreation Center will be closed starting Saturday March 14, 2020 and will reopen when it is deemed safe.  We will keep you updated via email and social media.  We wish you all wellness and health.

Outdoor recreation in Oregon is effectively closed, here’s how the decisions were made

The first day of spring was beautiful in Oregon. Blue skies and warm sun greeted the state on March 19, tempting people out to beaches and hiking trails, snowy mountains and waterfall viewpoints.

A week later, virtually all outdoor recreation in Oregon had closed, including every national forest, all state parks, most national parks and a growing number of local parks across the state as officials responded to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and a population that just couldn’t stay away from nature.

The closures coincided with Oregon Gov. Kate Brown’s executive order banning all nonessential travel outside the home until further notice. The order also shut down playgrounds and closed all public and private campgrounds in the state.

The sudden wave of closures left many Oregonians reeling, wondering if there was some way to keep our cherished outdoor spaces open while maintaining public health. How and why were these severe decisions made?

OREGON STATE PARKS

As the coronavirus began to spread across the Pacific Northwest, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department had a plan in place: advise all park visitors to maintain social distance, while beginning an orderly two-week shutdown of state park campgrounds.

At the time, public health officials were still recommending people go out hiking as a way to relax and maintain physical health. As long as people maintained the recommended six feet of social distance, there wouldn’t be a problem, they said.

But as the spring equinox sun carried into the first weekend of Oregon schools’ spring break, it quickly became clear that social distancing in parks was going to be a tall order.

“You always hold out hope that people will listen when you say, ‘don’t clump up,’” state parks spokesman Chris Havel said. “That didn’t happen.”

Instead people flooded state parks. Day-use areas and campgrounds were crowded. It was true in the Willamette Valley and way out in the high desert, but especially on the Oregon coast.

Throngs of visitors at beaches and in small towns alarmed local residents. Officials in towns up and down the coast told visitors to leave, closing local campgrounds, shutting down hotels and short-term lodging, and giving tourists 24 hours to go home.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is not just an opportunity for a traveling vacation,” Tillamook Mayor Suzanne Weber said in a video message. “It’s a threat to our very lives.”

That development shook up the state parks department’s plans, Havel said. Officials suddenly saw the urgency of the moment. On Sunday afternoon, March 22, the department closed all campgrounds and day-use sites immediately, shutting down the entire state park system.

“This is not going the way we expected, and the local communities made a very good point,” Havel said of the department’s thinking that weekend. “The timelines here aren’t being dictated by our plans.”

“The Gaiters” moniker was chosen as the nickname for the Bishop’s University football team in 1947. This nickname was adopted to help fire up the enthusiasm of fans – and clearly, it worked.

Today, decades later, Gaiter Pride continues to run deep and strong, not only on the BU campus in Lennoxville but also throughout the world. The Bishop’s University Gaiters have become more than just a football team – what was once just a name for a sports team is now an identity that transcends sports disciplines and athletic inclination.

Coronavirus: Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti shuts down beach parking, recreation facilities due to ‘too many people packing beaches, trails and parks’

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced Sunday night he was shutting down parking at city beaches and closing sports recreation facilities in Los Angeles County amid the coronavirus pandemic.

On Twitter, Mayor Garcetti said the decision came after officials saw “too many people packing beaches, trails and parks” over the first weekend of the “Safer at Home” order issued on Thursday.

“This is serious. Stay at home and save lives,” the Tweet said in part.

The announcement comes after officials announced Saturday that all sports and recreation areas at Los Angeles County parks will be closed until further notice amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation said the decision was made as an extra precaution in response to COVID-19.

The closure affects playgrounds, fitness equipment areas, courts, skate parks, multi-use fields, pickleball courts, golf courses and lawn bowling.

Local and state officials continue to push for social distancing during the “Safer at Home” order issued last week.
