Week 6: With COVID-19 restrictions, people still going outside

April 21, 2020

Numerous trails - such as Lewes-to-Georgetown, Junction-and-Breakwater and Gordon’s Pond – and Cape Henlopen State Park are providing relief to many people who are shut in most of the time due to COVID-19 state-of-emergency restrictions. Although not all activities are available at the park, trails are open and plenty of open space is available. Fishing is permitted on the Cape park fishing pier and at Indian River Inlet, and surf fishing is still permitted with some restrictions.

Beaches in Dewey and Rehoboth are closed, but Lewes Beach is open to those exercising or walking dogs. State park beaches are effectively closed to everything but surf fishing. Surfing on state park beaches is prohibited.
