San Juan Strong Promise

As we recover and begin resuming our usual activities during the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to ensure the safety of our visitors, customers, and locals alike. While restrictions or recommendations may change, we want to let you know that we will continue to go above and beyond to keep our communities a safe, healthy place to live, work, and visit.

The San Juan Strong Promise is two-fold commitment including 1) businesses & community members 2) customers & visitors. If we all work together to adhere to the basic principles of the promise we will be able to continue to maintain operations, keep our doors open, maintain the public health, and crush the curve of COVID-19.

Together, We Are San Juan Strong

We invite you to join us in the San Juan Strong Promise:


As a customer and/or visitor you are a part of the San Juan Strong Promise, here is how: 

  • Wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitizer when hand washing isn't available
  • Sneeze or cough into your elbow
  • Avoid touching your face

Tips to Recreate Responsibly

Whether seeking wide-open spaces or exploring a historic urban neighborhood, remember to #RecreateResponsibly! We encourage you to follow the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and follow Leave No Trace principles as well as Visit With Respect principles when you visit.

  • Know before you go. Visit for current natural amenity conditions and availability and openings. Make a plan, consider the 10 Essentials, and if you are sick, stay home.

  • Keep it close. Follow the state and county orders governing the open status of the area you’re considering visiting. 

  • Keep your distance. Recreate with the people in your household. Give others plenty of room whether you are on a trail, at a boat launch, or in a parking lot. Follow the CDC’s social distancing guidelines for staying six feet away from others. Be prepared to cover your nose and mouth if you’re near others.

  • Know your limits. Consider postponing challenging hikes or trying new activities while first responders, parks, and communities continue to concentrate on responding to the pandemic.

  • Keep it with you. If you brought it, take it with you. Trash pickup and restroom facilities will continue to be limited in many public land areas.

  • Keep it local. Remember that the local communities you are visiting help to support the improvements and recreation the neighboring public lands. Please remember to support our local businesses as you visit the surrounding public lands. For a list of operational businesses please visit:
