MEDFORD, Ore--- According to Oregon Health Authority, some state parks are now open for limited day-use. However, all overnight camping still remains temporarily closed.

If you are planning to go to a state park in the future, make sure to check the park map at https://bit.ly/oprd-c19map

Oregon Health Authority says that park visitors should expect a different state park experience than they are used to. Before you go, you should prepare by:

• Staying home if you’re sick.

• If visiting, staying local and close to home, meaning less than 50 miles in urban areas.

• Only visiting with members of their household.

• Bringing all supplies—food, water, hand cleanser—needed for a short trip.

Oregon Health Authority also says if a park appears crowded, you should leave and come back another time. If you do happen to find a safe spot, you should follow these guidelines:

• Wear a face covering. Homemade is fine.

• Stay at least 6 feet away from people who aren’t from your household. More is better.

• Cover your cough with a tissue (then throw it away), or the inside of your elbow.

• Leave no trace: Pack out everything you bring with you.

• Stick to low-risk activities to reduce stress on local emergency response and health care systems.

• Keep your visit short. Restrooms and other buildings may be closed.

• Watch for signs at the park for more information.

The Oregon Department of Agriculture is releasing guidelines for visiting U-Pick farms. It says as more fresh produce comes into season, some may wonder about finding a U-pick farm. If you are headed to one, make sure to follow these guidelines:

• Do not come if you are sick, have symptoms of COVID-19, or have come in contact with someone with COVID-19.

• If bringing your own picking containers to the farm, they should be washed, disinfected, and rinsed before arrival. Follow the manufacturer’s label directions. See: https://oda.fyi/CleanDisinfect

• In order to minimize the risk of acquiring COVID-19, avoid touching your face and maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others, unless they are from the same household.

• Children should stay with parents at all times.

• Do not eat fruit while picking.

• Do not touch produce that you will not pick.
