The Department of Public Services has been working closely with Lake County’s Public Health Officer, Gary Pace, MD, MPH, to protect the health and promote the well-being of all County residents.
Effective immediately, all County Parks are open for outdoor activities as long as they are performed alone, with no direct or indirect physical contact, without sharing equipment, with no group congregation and in compliance with social distancing of six feet.
Paddle-propelled watercraft that can be launched by hand and with a maximum of two people are permitted to be put in from the shore of county parks.
Fishing from the shore of the lake (in areas where the parks are open) is permitted, as long as social distancing of 6 feet is maintained. No gatherings of more than two people.
Play structures remain closed until further notice due to concerns regarding increased risk of viral transmission.
All public boat ramps remain closed until further notice.
Thank you for your cooperation, and for taking action to keep those close to you safe.
