The national forests are still open for recreation at this time, though visitors need to observe the social distancing guidelines.

Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest Public Affairs Officer Robin DeMario says that might mean stepping off the trail to give space to another person, or giving ample distance in the parking lot.

That's not all though.

"Don't try anything dangerous or out of the limits you have set for yourself. Be extra cautious as emergency responders are very busy and resources that typically support search and rescue are being used to respond to the Covid-19 emergency."

If you have any questions, or want to check on availability contact the local ranger station.
