Queen Anne’s County Parks and Recreation Encourages Residents to Use Caution

 

The Queen Anne’s County Department of Parks and Recreation urges our residents and visitors to do their part to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. If you go to a park or trail to exercise, please use common sense and caution. Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and others when outside. Do not gather in groups of more than 10. Do not participate in any team and contact sports, such as basketball, football, softball and soccer. Cookouts are not permitted in our parks, until further notice. Avoid touching surfaces including playground equipment, benches, and other sports equipment that are handled by others.


Be smart. Do your part!
