Can the public still visit National Forest recreation sites and facilities? If so, how can they do so safely?

In coordination with state and local health and safety guidelines, National Forests remain open however recreation services at our facilities may be changed, suspended or offered through alternate approaches as we manage for the health and safety of our work force and the public. Agency direction tasks local managers to perform risk assessments of our facilities and limit congregations of people and person to person interactions. Our decisions will align with local city, county and state actions to provide for human health and safety (i.e., quarantine, curfew, and other social restrictions).

Visitors to our National Forests are urged to take the precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
