KING CITY — City of King playground areas and equipment reopened for children’s use on Oct. 26 in response to new guidance released by the California Department of Public Health.
“However, while the State of California has now allowed playgrounds to open, they have also issued a number of restrictions to prevent the spread of Covid-19,” said City Manager Steve Adams in a news release. “The public is requested to carefully follow all these restrictions.”
A list of the restrictions can be found at the City’s website kingcity.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Playground-Use-Restrictions.pdf, and they will be posted in both English and Spanish at each playground area.
City staff will be disinfecting the playground equipment every Monday and Friday morning.
Picnic areas and park restrooms remain closed, while sports fields are closed for all activities other than walking, jogging or sports teams that have been authorized by the City under the County Health Officer’s criteria for social circles.
