You’re quoting the same language I quoted, which refers to a cessation of reservations, not a closure. Elsewhere, the Order says closure when it means closure, so this seems like something else.

noun
noun: cessation; plural noun: cessations
the fact or process of ending or being brought to an end.

TO ME.... I read that as no stays LESS THAN 14 days....since they added UNDER 14...


DO you think it makes sense to not allow someone to stay overnight if they have a reservation, but allow them to stay just showing up ?? Maybe I m missing something??????

Take another look at the update I added to my last post, which has the Virginia Government referring to campgrounds remaining open. The language certainly isn’t a model of clarity, but when they closed other businesses, they said so. Here they didn’t.

I did... and Im not arguing, just thinking out loud.... Why can't Governors be SPECIFIC instead of wishy washy... Up here in PA , its the same thing... They ALL are listing things and allowing the public to decipher for them selves....

If I had to guess, I think they were aware that closing private campgrounds would be a hardship on full-timers and the remaining snowbirds heading up I-95, but wanted to discourage others from populating the campgrounds. A reservation ban injects a lot of uncertainty for short-term campers, so many will stay home, and the poor wording may give even more the idea that campgrounds are unavailable. I worked in government for a long time, and there’s usually a reason for choosing ambiguous language.

Interesting, not that it makes a huge difference to us. Everything is in ground stop mode right now. No permission & no way to take off even if we wanted to.

Except for holiday weekend & special events we are no reservation people rarely staying put for more than 4 days. Guess if we were in VA this would make no difference to people with travel habits like ours.

Looks like they are trying to kill off the economy as much as possible! Yes this is serious, but it has to be put in perspective.

X2. One also has to look at the long-term effects of such a shutdown. Potential increases in poverty, suicide, child/spousal abuse and overall mental health need to be taken into consideration. A more measured approach such as the governors in New England are doing-shut down until 5/4 then a week-to-week basis-seems far more logical. People need hope, even if it's just a slight glimmer.

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Exactly. Although doom and gloom are the preferred ways for media to advertise. Right now the country needs something to look forward to. Like the tens of thousands jay have recovered. Or the millions that probably had it and didn’t even know they did and are OK now.
