Is Hale open or closed right now?
Hale is currently OPEN from dawn to dusk.
This may change at any time. In consultation with the Board of Health we’ve determined that it is in our community’s best interest to join fellow organizations in closing our roads and parking lots as use patterns change during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check this page before traveling to Hale on any given day.
