LTVAs To Open As Normal This Season
Great news per the Facebook page of the Bureau of Land Management – Arizona:
“The Bureau of Land Management in Arizona is planning to offer normal services and facilities at the Long-Term Visitor Areas (LTVA) for the upcoming winter season. The LTVA season will begin on schedule on September 15. The four La Posa LTVAs near Quartzsite (La Posa North, South, West, and Tyson Wash), and the Imperial Dam LTVA near Yuma are a popular winter tradition for the visiting public. We need everyone to do their part to ensure a successful LTVA season.
BLM staff will continue monitoring COVID-19 guidelines from state and local health officials, and we will adjust operations as needed to comply with those guidelines.
While we plan to maintain facilities and services as we do each year, LTVA visitors can be best prepared by bringing their own sanitation supplies such as toilet paper and hand sanitizer. We remind our visitors to follow the CDC’s guidance to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, including maintaining social distancing, covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and staying home if you feel sick.
We continue to keep most BLM public lands in Arizona accessible during the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing the public to have a place to be socially distant, together. We appreciate our visitors’ cooperation in making this winter’s LTVA season a successful one.
