City Playgrounds Open, Children and Adults Must Follow COVID-19 Precautions

Following September 28, 2020 guidance from the California Department of Public Health, the City of Santa Rosa has reopened all City playgrounds with requirements and precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Signage has been posted to remind residents about the requirement to follow necessary precautions when using playgrounds and to adapt the way they live and function in light of the ongoing risk of the coronavirus pandemic.

Visitors to outdoor community playgrounds must comply with the following requirements:

  1. Face masks over the mouth and nose are required for everyone 2 years of age or older with caregiver supervision at all times to ensure face mask use.
  2. Do not use the playground when different households are unable to maintain a physical distance of 6 feet.
  3. Caregivers must monitor to keep adults and children from different households at least 6 feet apart.
  4. Consider visiting on different times or days to avoid wait times and potential crowded times.
  5. No eating or drinking in playground, to ensure face masks are worn at all times.
  6. Wash or sanitize hands before and after using the playground.
  7. Elderly and persons with underlying medical conditions should avoid playground areas when others are present.
  8. Limit visit to 30 min per day when others are present.

Read the California Department of Public Health’s full directive and guidance related to the reopening of playgrounds.
