Thank you to our friends at #Recreate Responsibly or putting together these helpful guidelines to assist you in planning for a safe and enjoyable vacation in Sequim as you enjoy the great outdoors. The Sequim community welcomes you and has worked hard to prepare for your visit.  Please remember:

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO -  Check the status of the place you want to visit.  If it is closed, don't go.  If it's crowded, have a back up plan.

PLAN AHEAD - Prepare for facilities to be closed, pack lunch, and bring essentials like hand sanitizer and a face covering.

EXPLORE LOCALLY - Limit long-distance travel and make use of local parks, trails, and public spaces.  Be mindful of your impact on the communities you visit.

PRACTICE PHYSICAL DISTANCING - Keep your group size small.  Be prepared to cover your nose and mouth and give others space.  If you are sick, stay home.

PLAY IT SAFE - Slow down and choose lower-risk activities to reduce your risk of injury.  Search and rescue operations and health care resources are both strained.

LEAVE NO TRACE - Respect public lands and water, as well as Native and local communities.  Take all garbage with you.

BUILD AN INCLUSIVE OUTDOORS - Be an active part of making the outdoors safe and welcoming for all identities and abilities.
