FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Parks remain open but have implemented precautionary measures due to the coronavirus.

Precautionary measures include canceling or postponing scheduled park events through April 30. Historic homes and museums remain open per winter and spring schedules and food services are limited to carry out, a statement from the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet said.

This decision was made by cabinet officials in conjunction with the Department of Parks as part of the state’s effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Officials recommend that visitors check the Kentucky State Parks website before arriving for information about park services and hours.
