What is COVID-19?

CDC is responding to a pandemic of respiratory disease spreading from person-to-person caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. The disease has been named “Coronavirus Disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”). This situation poses a serious public health risk. The federal government is working closely with state, local, tribal, and territorial partners, as well as public health partners, to respond to this situation. COVID-19 can cause mild to severe illness; most severe illness occurs in older adults.

Subject: DNR Work Parties and Events

Given the recent development and risk associated with the COVID-19 virus, we are reaching out to provide an update of current DNR Recreation operations.

Effective immediately, all work parties and permitted events on DNR-managed lands are cancelled through the end of April. Should a safety or health issue arise at a recreation site that requires additional support, our Region Managers may make an exception to this direction, so long as appropriate safety precautions are taken. Our Recreation Managers are reaching out directly to their contacts who have events scheduled from now through April to discuss this change.

Otherwise, our recreation sites are open as normal. With offices and schools closing, we believe that being outdoors is a healthy activity option at this time. DNR will continue to assess public safety on our lands and make changes as necessary.

Thank you for your understanding, and please stay healthy.
