    New CDC guidelines
    On April 27, 2020, the CDC issued new guidance titled “Choosing Safer Activities” and updates recommendations for vaccinated and nonvaccinated individuals for both inside and outside. Most outdoor activities are safe without mask for fully vaccinated individuals, however CDC still recommends masking wearing when attending a crowded, outdoor event, like a live performance, parade, or sports event. Non-vaccinated individuals should continue to wear masks outdoors when social distancing cannot be met. Since our current policies are based on CDC guidelines, our education campaign can adjust to these guidelines. We are not to ask visitors if they are vaccinated or not, but in our messaging and public education we can provide the current CDC recommendations as provided in the following link: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019- ncov/daily-life-coping/participate-in-activities.html Please remember that other requirements under ANNEX I to OPORD 2020-19 (USACE Operations in a COVID-19 Environment) are still in effect. CDC and DOD recommendations for face coverings within federal buildings remain in accordance with the previous guidelines. Social distancing and controlling capacity within buildings continues to be a recommended practice. We want to continue to do our part. Please ensure all staff, contractors and volunteers continue to follow USACE and CDC guidance on social distancing, face coverings and washing hands. Thanks to all for your dedication to providing recreation services and access for the visiting public under this continued challenging time. Please check on your teammates and when possible take some well-deserved time to relax away from work. Jeff
