Explore York and our partners are excited to be moving into the Yellow Phase of the state’s reopening plan on May 22! But what exactly does this mean for visitors to the county and our awesome partners? 

The yellow phase of reopening will primarily include retail businesses. Some stores will be re-opening to allow in-person sales. Keep in mind, stores may have adjusted hours and additional requirements for you to enter their locations. Make sure to check with your favorite stores before heading out. Curbside pick-up and delivery are still your best options during Yellow Phase, so if you can, take advantage of these options.

While your favorite restaurants and bars may not be opening for dine in services quite yet, you can still get take-out and delivery from many locations. Check out our blog posts on supporting local restaurants and Good Libations Trails locations during this time.

Outdoor recreation is still open and available for you to enjoy. Golf courses, state and county parks, and walking and biking trails continue to be free to use. York County Parks and Recreation will be opening certain amenities on Friday, May 22, the first day of York County being classified in the yellow phase of the state’s reopening plan. The off-leash dog area at Canine Meadows will open Friday. Water fountains, however, will be closed, so visitors should bring water for their dogs. Pavilions will be available for rental, but only for groups of 25 or less people. To reserve a pavilion, call the Parks office at 717-840-7440, extension 2. Some public restrooms may not be open, so plan ahead if heading out. Don’t forget to wear your masks and keep your distance on the trails!

Though we are thrilled to enter the re-opening phase of this strange time in our lives, please keep in mind that the Yellow Phase of re-opening does not mean things are back to normal. We encourage all guests and visitors to continue wearing masks, maintaining social distance, and to wash your hands.
