Following an emergency order, all Erie county campgrounds are being ordered to close.

According to WKBW, The Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz announced that all campgrounds will close effective at 9 a.m. April 15.

In the emergency order it says:

"The nature of activity at campgrounds does not allow for the practice of effective social-distancing such that life, health, and safety of the residents of Erie County may be imperiled thereby."

Closing the parks is apart of the many gathering places that were skipped over by the state during this pandemic
