Parks & Trails Alerts

Chester County is taking proactive steps to protect the health of our county and making recommendations that are meant to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and reduce the number of people infected.

We understand these actions will have a tremendous impact on the lives of people in our county. The Health Department is making these recommendations based on the best information we have to protect the public’s health at this time. These proactive steps are

necessary for the growing outbreak of COVID-19 when such measures can potentially impact the spread of the disease.

We would encourage Individuals at higher risk of severe illness to stay home and away from groups of people as much as possible, this would include public places with lots of people and large gatherings where there will be close contact.  If you are a person at a higher risk please consider your health first before registering for this program.  

People at higher risk include people:

  • Over 60 years of age 
  • With underlying health conditions including include heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes 
  • With weakened immune systems 
  • Who are pregnant
