TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

The fresh air of a beautiful state park welcomes you this spring, but not without a face mask. Starting tomorrow all visitors to state parks age of 13 and older will be required to bring a face covering to the park.

The distinction between bringing a face mask and wearing one is an important one.

Joggers, cyclists and walkers who are able to maintain six feet of space between themselves and others are not required to wear face masks.

Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) made their announcement about face masks this afternoon, in compliance with other face-covering guidelines that go into effect tomorrow for all businesses which are still open.

“A jogger may not need to wear a mask, unless they cannot maintain six feet from others, in the case of a narrow trail during a peak time when the jogger would likely have to pass other joggers, hikers and bicyclists also on the trail,” said Nikki A. Lavoie, chief of public affairs for DNREC.

Those who do not bring face masks when visiting these areas may be required to leave by DNREC Natural Resources Police officers or staff.

Governor John Carney’s thirteenth modification to his State of Emergency declaration requires Delawareans to wear face coverings in public settings.
