Outdoor recreational activity. Individuals must not engage in outdoor recreational activities where they will come into close proximity with others from different households. Individuals may engage in the activities listed below, provided that they follow the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (“DNR”) and MDH guidelines on outdoor recreation and guidelines for facilities and the public (“Outdoor Recreation Guidelines”), available at DNR’s COVID-19 website (https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/covid- 19.html):
i. Individuals may engage in any outdoor activity that is dependent upon or derives its principal benefit from natural surroundings and open space, including but not limited to hunting, fishing, trapping, boating, hiking, biking, golfing, picnicking, skiing, skating, and snowshoeing for the purposes of pleasure, rest, exercise, or relaxation, provided that the activity can be engaged in accordance with the Outdoor Recreation Guidelines, including maintaining at least six feet of separation between participants from different households. Groups within a single household may engage in outdoor activities or sports that do not allow for social distancing (e.g., soccer or basketball) but must not engage in such activities with members of other households.
