Some Outdoor Activities to Open in Maryland on Thursday

 

“We are beginning to see encouraging numbers. Hospitalizations are slightly down from a week ago, ICU numbers plateauing for 8 days. If these trends continue into next week, we will be ready to lift the stay at home order and to begin Stage One”

This includes “the reopening of certain types of businesses and lower risk community, religious, and quality of life activities.”

Effective at 7am tomorrow, the list of safe outdoor activities will be broadened to include: golf, tennis, boating, fishing, camping. Closed functions at state parks will be reopened, including all state beaches for walking and exercise, and playgrounds.

- Governor Larry Hogan

Marylanders are still encouraged to practice social distancing while participating in outdoor activities. Maryland State Parks and beaches will reopen for those to enjoy socially distant walks.

Despite Gov. Hogan’s announcement today that some outdoor activities can resume on May 7, all Montgomery County Recreation facilities will remain closed until further notice. While the outdoor areas surrounding County recreation centers remain open, all playgrounds remain closed. The decision to reopen outdoor public spaces like sports fields, courts and playgrounds must be made after consultation with the County’s Health Officer. Dr. Gayles will be at the Council on Thursday at 11 a.m. to provide the Council with an update on the County’s #Covid-19 response and associated issues.

I'm waiting for the swimming pools to open.  Other forms of exercise haven't enticed me, other than bike riding.  I wouldn't mind going horseback riding though.

Hello Roy - openings are occuring in other places as well and at varying stages.  Common sense and following protocol is still necessary.  Be safe.  Stay healthy.

Hello Roy,  We still have camping shut down in our state and not sure when that will open.  But at least we can show homes starting this Saturday!
