La Administración Wolf recuerda a los residentes de Pennsylvania que deben usar máscaras mientras disfrutan al aire libre

first_imgLa Administración Wolf recuerda a los residentes de Pennsylvania que deben usar máscaras mientras disfrutan al aire libre Español,  Press Release,  Public Health El Gobernador Tom Wolf y la Secretaria del Departamento de Conservación y Recursos Naturales (DCNR), Cindy Adams Dunn, recordaron hoy a los residentes de Pennsylvania que deben usar máscaras mientras disfrutan al aire libre cuando no pueden mantener un distanciamiento social constante de las personas que no son miembros de su hogar.“Es fundamental que los residentes de Pennsylvania aprovechen la oportunidad de salir y disfrutar de nuestros diversos parques, senderos y playas. Es bueno para nuestra salud física y mental. Pero debemos hacerlo de un modo seguro”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “La concurrencia a los parques ha aumentado drásticamente. Por ese motivo, los residentes de Pennsylvania deben protegerse a ellos mismos y a las demás personas que disfrutan del aire libre con una máscara”.La Secretaria Dunn dijo que las personas están acudiendo a sitios al aire libre en números récord, según lo demuestran las cifras recientes de la Oficina de Parques Estatales. Los informes de concurrencia de mayo de 2020 indican 5.8 millones de visitantes respecto de los 4.2 millones del año anterior. El sistema de parques tuvo un aumento de más de 1.5 millones de visitantes, lo que supone un incremento del 36%, y 18 parques vieron un aumento de más del 100%.“El fin de semana pasado atrajo a una multitud de visitantes a casi todos nuestros parques estatales, y esos números redoblan la necesidad de que todos los visitantes de los parques sean inteligentes y permanezcan seguros usando máscaras”, dijo Dunn. “Los funcionarios de nuestros parques dicen que las multitudes de este fin de semana festivo fueron ordenadas y, en su mayor parte, guardaban el distanciamiento social, pero que muchos no usaban máscaras. Las máscaras deben usarse por la seguridad de todos, especialmente en las áreas que reúnen a los visitantes de los parques: piscinas y playas cuando no están en el agua, áreas de sanitarios, y oficinas de parques estatales y centros de visitantes”.Para obtener información actualizada sobre los parques estatales y las instalaciones forestales, visite el mapa ¿Qué está abierto y qué está cerrado? del DCNR.El 1 de julio, la Secretaria de Salud la Dra.
