Masks required in the Duke Forest

In coordination with public health measures implemented by Duke University, masks are now required when passing others in the Duke Forest and when social distance (>6ft.) cannot be maintained. So, please carry a mask with you, and put it on when passing others.

While there have been exceptions to requirements of face coverings in the past, the exceptions are now defined as follows:

“Individuals must put on a mask or cloth face covering whenever another individual comes within 6′, even just to pass by. This applies to all outdoor spaces, including parking lots, sidewalks, building entrances, running and walking trails, and grassy areas.”

Please bring a mask with you when walking in the Duke Forest.
