Parks, Playgrounds, Splash Pads, Dog Park + Trails
We understand that our parks + greenways are important places for the health and physical activity of our community. Our parks, green spaces, dog park, and splashpads (season-dependent) are open.
We continue to follow the CDC and local health department’s guidelines for mask-wearing. Park users are encouraged to wear masks when not being active (i.e., walking, running, biking, etc.) and/or not fully vaccinated. CCPR staff will also wear masks if not fully vaccinated. Below are a few general notes for our park users.
- Please practice physical distancing and avoid close contact with others. The CDC recommends a minimum of 6 feet distance to help reduce the risk of spread between individuals.
- We need your help to keep our parks safe for you and others. Please stay home if you are sick and practice good hygiene. Sanitize your hands after touching surfaces within the parks. Avoid touching your face. Sneeze or cough into a tissue or the inside of your elbow. Place garbage in trash receptacles.
Tips to Protect You and Others from Illness
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have provided some preventative measures you can take as well.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
- Stay home if you have a fever or flu-like symptoms remain home until “fever free” for 24 hours. Fever free is considered having a temperature of less than 100° without medication for 24 hours.
- Consider saying home if you are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 because of your age (60+) or because you have a serious long-term health problem.
- Wash hands or use sanitizer. Wash hands for a minimum of 20 seconds.
- Stay away from people who are sick or not feeling well and avoid close contact with others through hugging, kissing or shaking hands.
- Disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects such as toys and doorknobs.
- Clean your mats and wipe down equipment before and after use while attending fitness classes or spaces.
- Bring your own towel or water bottle.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues or by coughing into the inside of the elbow. Throw used tissues away in the trash.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Seek assistance from a health professional if you see or experience symptoms that cause concern.
