COVID-19 in State Parks

 Masks should be worn when you’re in and around:

��Gatehouses
��Restrooms
��Park buildings (as they re-open)

If you are visiting a state park, don’t leave home without your mask! You don’t have to wear the mask when alone in the forest but be sure to #MASKUP around others.

Over the next few weeks, parks and forests continue to re-open services and amenities. With more amenities, visitors will be in contact with others more often.

Once you mask up in a park, please share a selfie and post to social media using the hashtags #iheartNJParks and #MaskUp. Thank you for doing your part to keep your family, friends, and neighbors safe.

Keep 6 feet of social distance between yourself and others.
