Time to Play: School Playgrounds Open, Athletic Workouts Resume

Playgrounds open for community use at own risk • High school athletic teams resume limited summer workout activities

School playgrounds are once again open for community use, after being closed throughout the spring. Families are welcome to use playgrounds at their own risk. Playground equipment will not be sanitized by school staff.

Playground visitors are recommended to take precautions for health and safety:

  • Wash hands before and after visiting the playground.
  • Maintain physical distancing of at least 6 feet from people outside your immediate household.
  • Bring hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes for use on surfaces you touch.
  • Stay home if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days. Symptoms include cough, fever and shortness of breath.

Outdoor sports courts such as tennis courts reopened in June, and school tracks and fields have remained open for individual community use throughout the spring, at the user’s own risk.

Also starting the week of July 6 until the moratorium week of July 26, some limited summer workout activity by high school athletic teams is permitted. High school athletic directors have developed protocols to adhere to health and safety directives. Workout activities may be held, following these protocols, when all necessary materials and equipment are available. Any summer workout activities are voluntary for coaches and students. All participants must submit a signed waiver.

School facilities remain closed to use by outside groups and general student activities, with limited specific exceptions.
