“It’s impossible to have children using the play equipment and still be able to do physical distancing,” said Petrucci, noting that the district doesn’t have the resources to keep the equipment sanitized at the needed levels.

A similar closure has been enacted in Dawson Creek, by the city.

Given the risks associated with the coronavirus pandemic, all playgrounds, outdoor fitness facilities, and skate parks were closed March 26, with the exception of parks, greenspaces, and trails.
