OHIO – Gov Dewine said that camping will resume on May 21 with guidelines. Here are the list of mandatory and suggested guidelines for camping.
• Post information throughout the campgrounds and surrounding areas to frequently remind campers and customers to take steps to prevent the spread
of COVID-19.These messages should include information about:
- Using social distancing and maintaining at least six feet
between individuals in all areas of the campgrounds
and with other campsites.
- Wearing a mask or face covering when entering
buildings or interacting in close proximity to other campers, practicing good personal hygiene
including washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, using hand sanitizer, refraining from touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands, coughing and sneezing into an elbow, etc.
Maintain public restrooms, showerhouses, and laundry facilities to lower risk of spread of virus.
- Ensure there are functional toilets.
- Clean and sanitize public areas and restrooms in the
morning and evening, with increased instances
of cleaning and sanitation during peak usage times. Cleaning should be conducted using EPA-registered disinfectants, particularly on high-touch surfaces such as faucets, toilets, doorknobs, and light switches
- Make sure supplies for handwashing, including soap and materials for drying hands, are fully stocked every time the bathroom is cleaned.
- Provide hand sanitizer where water is not available.
- Restrooms, showerhouses, and laundry facilities should
limit the number of users at any one time based on
the facility size and current social distancing guidelines. Cleaning and sanitizing public areas and restrooms should occur in the morning and evening, with increased instances of cleaning and sanitation
during peak usage times.
