KOA closing some parks by order of governments

3

UPDATED: April 9, 2020

Below is an updated list of KOA campgrounds that are closed due to local government orders. We will continue to update this list as we learn of new closures. Most KOA parks remain open.

Here’s a message to RVtravel.com readers from President and CEO Toby O’Rourke about what KOA is doing during this pandemic. This was recorded in the last week of March.

Campgrounds, like communities across the U.S. and Canada, are changing processes and procedures daily. Due to the rapidness of change, check your KOA’s landing page at KOA.com for updates and alerts about their campground. Most KOAs are still open and operating, taking new reservations and using recommendations by the CDC and their local government to ensure the best safety measures possible.

On the morning of Saturday April 4, 2020, I emailed a letter to Virginia Governor Rslpg N. advising that my spouse and I overnighted last Saturday in the KIA near Harrisonburg VA without physical contact with another human. We proceeded toward home northward on Sunday AM.

I urged Gov Northrum to consider amending his executive order to permit RV overnights in private VA campgrounds and to seek input from the VA industry RV campground owners in order to protect a vital part of the Zvirginia hospitality industry from devastation for no measurable benefit ( not to say great harm) to anyone at all.

Can we DV owners do anything else to help preserve this lifestyle that we have earned and love so much?

Well I work at a KOA and guess what…they are all coming to our campground in Southern Utah!!! What upsets me is we have not put into impliment of no guests in office. Which was sent in an e-mail. I dont say anything becahse I dont want to cause problems. I love my job..I love KOA but please we should be following major precautions.

Absolutely you should take control of the situation. As the CDC guidelines. We as Americans have a duty to not only protect ourselves but to protect others. So please step up and implement the guidelines the CDC and all health officials are saying. This is no joking matter nothing to take lightly. You should also be wearing a mask for sure. Surgical masks will not protect you from getting the virus but it will protect you from spreading it to others if you were A symptomatic.
Which means , you are contagious spreading the virus before you have any symptoms. Can be 3 to 7 days and as much as 2 weeks. So anyone you come in contact with could be contagious and spreading the virus unaware they are contagious. That is why its spreading so fast.
Lock the doors to the office and put up a sign only allow so many people in at one time. And tape off the floor with 6 feet apart rules.
So many people get it and spread it to other family members who are older and have worse odds in recovery.
If the Health officials are telling us what practices to do to keep us and others safe. It is our duty to follow these guidelines..
Make sure you are cleaning counters, door handles, pens, doors, anything people touch or you touch.as customers leave. Remember its viable on surfaces 24 to 72 hours on items..including our clothes, hair .so absolutely no touching head at all. Never order food and touch cups or food containers then touch your food…on the news last night no boxes, papers, food containers should come into your home..leave items outside and transfer into other things. You have no idea if someone was sick or contagious and touched of coughed or sneezed on something. Make sure if you do take out , remove the food from the container and discard container. Wash hands immediately 20 seconds and heat food. hot food will usually kill any virus. If the person has the virus and possibly boxed up the food or maybe cooked the food..
These steps may be a pain to do. But lives are at stake. And dying would be a horrible pain too.
