Playgrounds reopen with some new rules

Updated October 01, 2020
Following months of closures due to COVID-19, playgrounds are now reopen. Before you head out to the nearest playground, please plan ahead to follow the new rules issued by California Department of Public Health (CDPH):
  1. Face masks over the mouth and nose are required for everyone 2 years of age or older with caregiver supervision at all times to ensure face mask use.
  2. Do not use the playground when different households are unable to maintain a physical distance of 6 feet or when the capacity limit has been reached.
  3. Caregivers must monitor to keep adults and children from different households at least 6 feet apart.
  4. Consider coming on different times or days to avoid wait times and potential crowded times.
  5. No eating or drinking in playground, to ensure face masks are worn at all times.
  6. Wash or sanitize hands before and after using the playground.
  7. Elderly and persons with underlying medical conditions should avoid playground when others are present.
  8. Limit visit to 30 min per day when others are present.

To remind everyone of the new rules, this sign is also posted at all playgrounds:
