Playground Closures

Published by Wheatlands Metro on

We hope all of our residents are staying safe and healthy during this time.  Tri-County Health issued a public health order this morning which will close our neighborhood playgrounds (both at the clubhouse and the new park).   The order is as follows:

All public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring outside a single household or living unit are prohibited, except for the limited purposes as expressly permitted in Paragraph 5.  Nothing in this Order prohibits the gathering of members of a household or living unit.

For purposes of this Order, individuals may leave their residence only to perform any of the following “Essential Activities.”  However, persons at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and people who are sick are urged to stay in their residence to the extent possible except as necessary to seek medical care.  Essential Activities means:

To engage in outdoor activity individually or in groups of no more than 4 persons, provided each individual complies with Social Distancing Requirements as defined in this Paragraph 5, such as, by way of example and without limitation, walking, hiking, biking or running. Social distancing requirements for outdoor activity apply to those people from different households. For purposes of outdoor activity, public parks within TCHD’s jurisdiction should remain open to the public to engage in walking, hiking, biking, running, and similar outdoor activities but all playgrounds, golf courses, tennis courts, basketball courts, picnic areas, and other similar areas conducive to public gathering shall be closed.

This order is issued through April 17th.   Please take care during this time and stay safe.
