Has your state tentatively posted when parks will open back up?

According to our local paper, State Park and DEC campgrounds are scheduled to open June 7th. Specific details about cleaning bathrooms, social distancing, etc. will be known soon. A month ago I wasn't optimistic about any camping in NYS this year, but residents for the most part have been listening to our health officials and politicians. State wide we are on the downward slope of infections, deaths and hospitalizations. Our efforts seemed to have paid off.

Shockingly, in our area of northern Florida, we rarely see anyone with a mask. My family wears them, but I feel self conscience about it since nobody else does. Florida is a hard hit state, but nobody is cooperating.

We live in an area where there are many natural springs. Most are government owned and managed. There is still one under private ownership. I'm going to link to a video to what went on there this past weekend. Social distancing went WAY out the window.
If officials hadn't lied from the beginning people may have taken them more seriously, but there will always be a percentage that will be defiant.

I'm working in PA, on a job where masks are suggested if you're in close proximity to others.
But went in the Sheetz 2 miles from the job and everyone was wearing masks.

We just got back from the campground, it was a little over half full, and nice and quiet like always.

As of today, a few more things are open in NM. More state parks have opened for day use only, but not for camping. No congregating on lakes or beaches. It isn't clear what the capacity for private campgrounds is, it's been 20 or 25%, but may or may not have been increased, since hotels are now allowed 50% capacity. As far as I can tell, the NFs still only have dispersed camping & there are fire bans, but you'd best check each site if you want to camp.
Dining in restaurants is now permitted at 50% capacity, patio dining was allowed to open last week.
