Poloncarz order shuts Erie County campgrounds starting Wednesday morning

All campgrounds in Erie County will be prohibited from opening as of 9 a.m. Wednesday under a new order issued Tuesday by County Executive Mark Poloncarz.

Poloncarz announced the order on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

The order covers campgrounds, as defined by state law and which require a permit to operate, Poloncarz said.

"The nature of activity at campgrounds does not allow for the practice of effective social-distancing," the order says, in part.

The order remains in effect for five days and may be renewed in five-day increments.
