Complying with Public Health Orders at County Parks

An important message from the County of Lake’s Department of Public Services.

LAKE COUNTY, CA (March 24, 2020) – 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 closed to all uses except Essential Activities, as defined in Public Health Order C20-3 and Addendum C20-3 (A2).

The following Orders are emphasized:

• Any outdoor activity such as walking, hiking or running shall be in compliance with Social Distancing Requirements (i.e., maintain 6 feet from any individual not part of your specific household).

• Public events and gatherings and most outdoor events like disc golf, golf, skate park use, basketball, tennis, etc. are prohibited.
