The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) prepared the following statement in support of the safe use of parks and open spaces during the COVID-19 outbreak. We believe that many parks, trails and open spaces can continue to be used in a safe manner that allows people to enjoy the mental and physical health benefits these spaces provide.
We have to take social distancing more seriously. Our MPRB community in Minneapolis has put out this announcement but it really does include, not only the Twin Cities (Saint Paul), but nationwide areas. We can get through this together.
