Parks and Facilities COVID-19 Update

The Parks and Recreation Department recognizes the physical and mental health benefits of outdoor recreation and encourages the community to recreate responsibly. At this time, you can still enjoy time outdoors at the following areas for passive use, such as walking, jogging or leisure time for families and individuals. CDC guidelines requiring physical distancing of at least 6 feet must be followed at all times, and the gathering of groups is prohibited.

The situation is constantly evolving and we are operating in unchartered territory. We are working closely with Mono County Health Department to ensure our Parks and Recreation community receives credible information and advice during this challenging time. We will continue to react to federal, state and local guidelines as they are implemented and will keep you up to date with any changes.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Stay healthy and safe.
