With the number of COVID-19 cases in Wayne County rising and reports from the U.S. Surgeon General that the next few weeks are slated to see a steep rise in the spread of infection, Wayne County government and the City of Richmond have come together to take additional steps to ensure the health and safety of our community. To encourage adherence to CDC guidelines and minimize contact to high touch surfaces, the following measures have been taken.
Within the Richmond Parks and Recreation Department:
Within Wayne County:
These measures are being taken at the recommendation of the Wayne County Health Department and seek to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, and are in alignment with Governor Holcomb’s Executive Order 20-18 issued today, that called for, among other things, the closure for all indoor and outdoor places of public amusement, including playgrounds. As we all know, the situation is evolving daily and will be updated accordingly.
In the meantime, we encourage the community to continue to use the shared green space responsibly. Together we will overcome, and when we do, we will be waiting and ready to serve you at all of our locations. Thank you for your support.
