People keeping social distance while heading out to park trails

People are fed up of being cooped up inside, so they’re heading outdoors and looking for alternative ways to stay active and busy.

REDDING, Calif. - People are fed up of being cooped up inside, so they’re heading outdoors and looking for alternative ways to stay active and busy.

A representative with the Redding Recreation Department tells Action News Now it
They don't have any plans to close the trails or parks for now. But the department says, if it starts to see overcrowding they could shut down parks and trails.

“I hope people are really taking this seriously because we really need to protect our most vulnerable,” said Jan Skipitis of Redding. “I'm a registered nurse so I really take this to heart.”

Staff continues to maintain facilities by cleaning up the bathrooms and taking out trash. But the Redding Recreation Department urges people to wash their hands after using park equipment because the playground isn’t sanitized after each use.

A disturbance moved over northern California and the rest of the Pacific Northwest this afternoon. It brought more gusty wind like yesterday, and cooler air, but only isolated rain showers. It will be much quieter this weekend with a late summer warmup.
