Have fun, but play safe.
That’s the word as the city of Goleta announces the reopenings of its playgrounds, skate park and fitness stations.
The city made the announcement in a video featuring Parks & Recreation Manager JoAnne Plummer. You can watch her at Jonny D. Wallis Neighborhood Park in Old Town Goleta at www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1jlQUG3J2k&feature=youtu.be.
The city is reminding everyone to:
— Wear a face covering over your mouth and nose. That applies to everybody 2 and older.
— Maintain a physical distance of 6 feet between individuals from different households and prevent crowding of children. If you can’t maintain that distance, don’t use the facility, said the city.
— Wash or sanitize your hands before and after your visit. Playgrounds are cleaned three times a week, but the city noted it’s impossible to clean surfaces between every user.
— Visit a playground at different times or days to avoid crowds and waits. Peak hours tend to be weekday afternoons and weekends from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
— Limit your visit to 30 minutes when others are waiting to use a facility.
— Avoid playgrounds if others are on the playground and you’re elderly or have underlying medical conditions.
— Remember organized group activities that include people outside your household are not permitted.
— Follow all guidelines at the skatepark at Jonny D. Wallis Neighborhood Park.
— Remember playgrounds, skate park and fitness stations are open 8 a.m. to sunset every day.
