The city of Las Vegas says it will reopen playgrounds with precautions in place for COVID-19.
According to a press release, signs are being installed at all city parks to indicate maximum occupancy for each playground, along with the safety rules.
The city offers the following precautions to reduce the spread of the coronavirus:
- Wear a mask: Everyone 2 to 9 years of age is encouraged to wear a face covering. Those more than 10 years of age must wear a face covering. The face covering must cover the nose and mouth.
- Maintain Distance: Maintain physical distance of 6 feet between individuals from different households and prevent crowding of children.
- No Food or Drink: Do not eat or drink in the playground area to ensure face masks are always worn.
- Know When to Stay Home: Elderly individuals or people with underlying medical conditions should avoid playgrounds when others are present.
- Plan Ahead: Visit the park at different times or days to avoid crowds and waits.
- Wash Hands: Wash or sanitize your hands before and after your visit to the playground.
- Share Our Space: To avoid crowding and allow everyone to use this space, please limit your visit to 30 minutes when others are waiting.
"I am happy that we are now able to safely reopen our playgrounds for our families to use immediately," Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman said in a statement. "I hope that everyone will abide by these guidelines so that the playgrounds will remain open for our children to enjoy."
The city says it's also working on restarting sports leagues and games for youth and adults. Staff members are reviewing Nevada's latest directives, according to the press release, and applicants must get approval from the state.
