OROVILLE, Calif. - One popular recreational area is open just in time for the Memorial Day Weekend.
For more than two months – the Lake Oroville Marina Lime Saddle area has sat empty.
But on Monday, California State Parks gave it the green light to reopen.
"We're back we're ready to go," said Jason Maxson, assistant general manager of operations at Lake Oroville Marina Lime Saddle.
That's music to the ears of fisherman Phil Dickinson.
"You can't be more isolated than you are in a boat," Dickinson said.
But, before you head out there, are some changes to be aware of.
"Just like every other business frequent disinfecting and cleaning of touch surfaces," Maxson said.
Employees also have to wear face masks when they're interacting with customers. Nicholas Gomez is in charge of cleaning the fuel and pump-out stations.
"I'm so happy to be back," Gomez said. He's been out of work for two months.
"Of course we still have to take precautions and make sure we're staying clean," Gomez said.
At the Lake Oroville Marina store, only two customers are allowed inside. There's also a hand sanitizer station next to the cashiers.
The shuttle service is also only available for people who already have their boats parked.
"We are limiting only two groups at a time. We're trying to separate them from one boat to the other so they can keep their social distancing," Maxson said.
Even with the new rules, there are still lots of fun activities to do on the lake.
"I know everybody was really anxious to get back out here," Maxson said.
Bidwell Canyon is also open with safety measures in place. Maxson says right now they're not letting anyone rent small boats.
