COVID-19 Mitigation UPDATE 1/19/2021: Effective Sunday December 6, 2020
All in-person programs are canceled until at least March 31st.
This cancelation includes all State Park and Forestry hosted events and festivals.
Virtual and self-guided programs will be offered. Check the calendar of events https://events.dcnr.pa.gov/ for scheduled programs.
Effective 12:01 AM Friday November 20, 2020, by order of the Governor and to help decrease the spread of COVID-19, the following changes are in effect until at least March 31, 2021:
Overnight Stays and Out-of-State Visitors
The PA Department of Health aligned its quarantine guidance for people exposed to COVID-19 with the new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This guidance provides an option for a 10-day quarantine without testing or a seven-day quarantine with a negative test on or after day-five of quarantine.
If someone cannot get a test or chooses not to, they must quarantine for 10 days upon arrival in Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvanians visiting other states are required to have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to their return to the commonwealth or to quarantine for 10 days upon return to Pennsylvania.
The incubation period for COVID-19 remains at 14 days and it is still most protective to quarantine for the full two weeks. However, the CDC has affirmed that quarantine can end after 10 days if the person doesn’t develop symptoms, or after seven days if the person tests negative and has no symptoms.
This does not change the need for Pennsylvanians to continue to wear masks, wash hands, avoid gatherings with people outside of your household, and social distance. These efforts must continue to stop the spread of COVID-19. If you have questions, please call the park office before your visit.
We require guests to cancel if they are unable to honor the order. The order is enforceable as a disease control measure under the Disease Prevention and Control Law. The commonwealth continues to encourage compliance, and expects that, since all people are affected by this virus, everyone will do their utmost to comply.
If you have questions, please call the park office before your visit.
Caution: Please be advised that hunting season is open and permitted in designated areas within state parks. For your protection, all visitors should take proper precautions such as wearing a fluorescent orange vest and hat while recreating in areas of the park that are open to hunting during your visit. If you have questions please contact the park office.
SPOT THE PROBLEM. The spotted lanternfly is an invasive insect that poses a serious threat to Pennsylvania’s resources, businesses, and economy. To date, our park does NOT have these pests. Help us stay lanternfly free and stop the spread. Visit the Penn State Extension’s Spotted Lanternfly website to learn how to identify it, report it, and inspect your vehicle or gear when traveling to and from the quarantine zone.
