LAS VEGAS (April 10, 2020)
WHAT: Lee Canyon urges residents to follow Governor Sisolak’s Stay-at-Home directive. Despite the recent snowfall, people should not be traveling to Lee Canyon for outdoor recreation of any kind. Given the seriousness of the COVID-19 crisis, the snowpack is not currently monitored so that employees can be safe at home. Refraining from recreating in the mountains also helps to ease the burden on local first responder teams, who are already taxed by the COVID-19 crisis.
Along with its partners, the US Forest Service, Lee Canyon urges people to #StayHomeForNevada. Those who want to spend time outdoors should do so close to home and only in places where social distancing can be practiced.
The US Forest Service recently announced the closure of campgrounds, day-use areas, and visitors’ centers in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.
