City playground equipment, will be reopened to the public today, Friday May 1, 2020 at 3:00pm.
Playground equipment includes basketball courts and other such features.
Playgrounds and playground equipment were closed in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to reduce the need for Jordan’s first responders to enforce social distancing – requiring valuable PPE, and increasing the likelihood of spread among City Employees.
Families and guardians should be careful to ensure children wash hands after touching play structures and maintain six feet of space from other children as much as possible. Although the Governor’s order doesn’t close playgrounds, they may still be closed by local authorities.
Residents are encouraged to enjoy parks and trails while practicing safe social distancing. For more information on social distancing and COVID-19, please refer to the latest guidance from the CDC.
