Social Distancing-Friendly Activities at Chesapeake Bay KOA
COVID 19 might be keeping you away from the campground right now, but camping season isn’t cancelled.
When you can return to the campground, it’s still important to practice social distancing. Luckily, the Eastern Shore of Virginia has lots of open spaces where you can be socially distant and still have fun.
Don’t forget to pack essentials, like a face mask, disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer, so you can stop the spread of germs and stay six feet away from others.
Here are a few ways to enjoy the great outdoors while staying safe and keeping others healthy.
