|Dear Members and Downtown Stakeholders:
Beginning Friday, the City’s parks department will start reopening more than 290 playgrounds and exercise equipment.
Parents are responsible for their kids following the protocol. Signs surrounding the playgrounds have to be followed, as well as County Public Health Orders. We can recite the basic rules: wash or sanitize your hands before and after playing; wear face coverings the entire time; keep six-foot social distance; stay home if anyone in the family is sick; don’t share personal items brought to the park and sanitize equipment before and after use with EPA approved disinfectants.
For some time to come, this is the new normal in almost everything we want to do outside besides just taking a walk and touching absolutely nothing or getting close to absolutely no one.
The timeline for park reopenings is here. How many children do you think will be on the playgrounds? And how many parents will be out there watching???
Definitely a reminder for businesses: What can you do to make your customers and employees at ease, and to simplify this very complex situation?
