MD DNR PROVIDES GUIDANCE ON OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES:
From MD DNR 3/31/20:
Can I go hunting?
Limited hunting is allowed if you are seeking food for you or your family, but the social distancing guidelines and the prohibition on social gatherings must be strictly followed.
Can I go fishing?
Limited fishing is allowed if you are seeking food for you or your family, but the social distancing guidelines and the prohibition on social gatherings must be strictly followed.
Can I go boating?
Recreational boating is prohibited until the governor lifts the executive order or until the State of Emergency has ended. However, if an individual is boating to seek food for them or their family, boating is permitted. Boats used to transport essential employees or goods as defined in the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s Guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce are also permitted.
Does kayaking or paddle boarding count as recreational boating?
Since kayaking and paddle boarding are a form of exercise, they are permitted under the executive order. Guidance on social distancing and the prohibition on social gatherings must be strictly followed.
I live on my sailboat – can I still be in my boat slip or moored out?
If your boat serves as your residence, you can remain on the vessel.
