All outdoor playgrounds in California permitted to reopen

By The New ALT 105.3

All outdoor playgrounds in the state of California are now allowed to reopen according to the state's Department of Public Health. It no longer matters what tier the county falls under in terms of reopening measures for the coronavirus pandemic.

The guidance does not apply to indoor playgrounds.

Many across the state have seen slides, swings, and play areas roped off since mid-March, but the caution tape will come down and these rules are expected to be abided by:

• All children must be supervised
• Wash hands before & after use
• No eating, or drinking on the playground
• Children over two years of age need to wear a face covering
• Visits should be limited to 30 minutes
• Members of different households should stay at least six feet apart

Cities are now expected to sanitize playgrounds regularly, provide sanitization and hand washing stations, and to post guidelines on the max capacity for the area.

Additionally, playgrounds must be closed to the broader public during times of planned events at each location.
