The CDC has stated that there are concerns with playgrounds and facilities located within local, state and national parks, including:
They are often crowded and could easily exceed recommended guidance for gatherings;
It can be challenging to keep surfaces clean and disinfected; and
The virus can spread when young children touch contaminated equipment and then touch their unwashed hands to their eyes, nose or mouth.
Based on these, as well as recommendations from the National Recreation & Parks Association (NRPA), all Warrensburg parks facilities, which include ballfields, playgrounds, shelters, bathrooms, benches/tables and the ABC Building will remain closed until further notice.
