Recreation sites on the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest will stay closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Forest made the announcement Friday morning.
The order closes trails, picnic sites, boat landings, restrooms, and all camping on the Forest until further notice.
“We’re more acting on the potential for those crowded conditions,” said spokesperson Hilary Markin. “We have seen an increase in some areas, but it’s more, we’re delaying the opening, and then, we’ll be monitoring the situation and adjusting accordingly.”
