Governor Wolf announced that some outdoor activities would be allowed to start back up again on Friday, May 1st, to help Pennsylvanians maintain positive physical and mental health.
Those activities and businesses include:
- Golf Courses
- Guided Fishing Trips
- Privately owned campgrounds. (State-run Campgrounds will remain closed through May 14th.)
They are required to follow all life-sustaining business guidance, and the FAQ provided by the state includes specifics for how these outdoor recreational industries can resume activities while prioritizing public health and safety.
“Pennsylvanians have remained resilient throughout this COVID-19 crisis, and as we successfully continue to flatten the curve to protect our physical health, it is critical that we also focus on our physical and mental health during these extraordinary times. As the weather warms and daylight lengthens, enjoying time outdoors is an important way to manage stress,” Wolf said. “As we start to take measured, limited steps to reopen our commonwealth, reopening these industries will help to rebuild our economy and strengthen our mental health.”
