Safety First – Physical Distancing

The National Recreation and Parks Association provides guidelines for safe distancing when in parks or on trails.

.

Restrictions and guidelines are different in various regions around the country, depending on how severe the coronavirus COVID-12 outbreak is – for now, in our region, WE CAN GO OUTDOORS for a walk, run, or bike-ride. Be sure to practice “physical distancing” and self-responsibility. Check local government websites for closings and/or restrictions at each site. 

.

The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is a changing situation. For the most up-to-date information, check resources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) regularly.

LEAVE NO TRASH. When you go, bring a suitable trash bag to take everything out. This protects park workers and helps keep our parks, trails, and river clean, green, and pristine.

.

We are very fortunate that the Appomattox River Trail provides nearby, beautiful, accessible locationsCLICK HERE to see where they are.
