CENTRAL POINT, Ore -- Governor Brown says people need to wear a face mask outside if they can't practice social distancing.

The manager of the Family Fun Center says it's up to the customers to put on a face mask when social distancing isn't possible. This applies if you are playing mini golf, getting in a go-kart to race or getting wet on bumper carts. Manager Matt Chubb says the center is so large, he doesn't think it will be an issue. 

For example with mini golf, his team makes sure there is enough space between each group before sending a new group to play. It is a large area. There are two different mini golf sections, batting cages and even an arcade inside. "As far as wearing a mask outside we can social distance out here. We have a sign on our door that gives instructions to all of our customers. We are leaving it to our customers to be responsible for their own actions." said Chubb

The Family Fun Center did have to close some things, because of the virus. There won't be any birthday parties and the playhouse is closed as well. 

Crater Lake National Park is also asking visitors to police themselves. "We are asking the public to be our partner in adopting social distancing practices." said Marsha McCabe. She is the Public Information Office for the National Park. This means people will not be patrolling or telling people to put on a mask if there are too many people together.

The park is open during the pandemic. However, both of the visitor centers are closed. "We are also not having any ranger led interpretative programs, boat tours, or the trolley tours this season." said McCabe. 

"The thing is, there are lots of places you can get out and social distance here in the park." said McCabe. The park takes up more than 180,000 acres.
