Effective 12 noon April 17, 2020, the portion of the Governor’s order restricting the launching of boats at public access points will be rescinded.
However the revision also authorizes the managing authority of said boat landings and ramps to keep them closed if they feel it is necessary to protect public health.
What does not change with this revision. The Governor’s previous executive orders enforcing social or physical distancing guidelines still apply. Boats are limited to groups of no more than two people with the exception of family members from the same household.
Beaching or rafting of boats, whether on a sandbar, lake shore, riverbank, or island is prohibited. Vessels must remain underway at all times unless exigent circumstances exist or anchoring to fish.
