Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

National Trail Parks and Recreation District has been monitoring the coronavirus outbreak with the guidance of the Clark County Combined Health District, including information from the Ohio Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Health authorities have indicated that the situation is evolving and we should do as much as possible to inform those we serve, the community and our staff of the measures we are taking to prevent the spread of the virus. We will continue to follow the guidelines from the Health District as they become available.
To stop the spread of germs, the following should be practiced:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
• Stop handshaking – use other methods of greeting.

Below are the steps that National Trail will take regarding our programs and events. This information may change based on further developments or recommendations from the Health District. Our goal is to keep our participants, families, and employees safe and healthy.

All National Trail Parks and Recreation District programs, activities and building rentals will be canceled beginning Monday, March 16 – Monday, April 6, 2020.
