But What About the Outdoors?

We know that you’re itching to get back outdoors, and Murrieta is here to help as long as you take precautions. Trails, parks, outside areas and some state parks are still open for walking, jogging, hiking and biking, but require social distancing and facial covering rules to be followed at all times.

Here are some tips from California State Parks on how to stay safe in the outdoors:

  1. Plan Ahead: Before you leave, check the location to see if it’s open and if it has any regulations you should plan for.
  2. Social Distance: Stay at least 6 feet away from anyone outside your immediate household. This includes friends and family from outside your household, so it’s best to postpone your gatherings until the time is right.
  3. Stay Clean: Bring any sanitary products (hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, etc.) that you can, and be mindful that public bathrooms may not be open.
  4. Stay Local: Stay close to home if you’re able to, and walk or bike to any outdoor activities you’re participating in.
  5. Stay Covered: The state of California requires face coverings in any public place. Even in the outdoors, carry a mask in case you are unable to maintain social distancing rules.

Taking a time out can be tough, but we’ll be here to welcome you back when the time is right. Until then, check out our blog post on how to experience Murrieta from afar.
