Such outdoor recreational opportunities as hunting, fishing and golf on Fort Knox will be offered again beginning March 27. These decisions are aimed at helping support the community's mental health, morale and fitness. And while these activities inherently promote social distancing, there are additional measures being implemented to ensure adherence to that standard as well as thorough and frequent cleaning of various surfaces.
Hunting and Fishing will be open to all tier levels.
