Moose Jaw, SK – The Government of Saskatchewan has announced that municipal playgrounds are able to re-open on Friday, June 12. The City of Moose Jaw will allow the use of playground equipment beginning June 12 based on the following public health orders:
- Those who are sick or have symptoms related to COVID-19 must not use parks or playgrounds.
- Use playground equipment at your own risk.
- It’s recommended that families carry hand sanitizer when visiting public spaces.
- Avoid overcrowding. Individual groups must not exceed the current restrictions on outdoor public gatherings (30).
- Limit gathering with other people when entering and leaving the park/playground and supervising children playing (e.g. paths, benches, picnic areas)
- If the playground equipment or park space is busy, come back when it’s not as busy or use another play area
- Consider visiting playgrounds close to home. This will limit the number of people with whom you may come into contact.
- Practice proper hand hygiene.
The City reminds residents that the BMX bike park, skateboard park and basketball courts are open for public use, but the rules above also apply.
