JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is keeping state parks open amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the department will try to limit visitors’ interaction with rangers and other park staffers.
State park workers will be on-site to answer questions and sign in campers. Signs will direct guests to restrooms and other services.
The changes went into effect Friday in a move to curtail the spread of the coronavirus. Campgrounds, all day-use areas, boat ramps and trails remain open.
