To allow the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company to conduct fall health checks of the ponies:
Friday, October 9, 2020 – Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge will close to all public access at 4 pm, reopening the following morning at 6am.
Saturday, October 10, 2020 – The Service Road north of D-Dike will be closed to all public access until noon.
While these health checks are normally open to the public to view ponies, the Refuge, in an abundance of caution and concern for the health and well-being of the public during the COVID-19 pandemic, has decided to close during this time so people won’t be tempted to congregate at the corrals.
