HugYourPeople Community Park and Zachary Youth Park Playground Update

Posted by zachary on March 17, 2020

A trip to the playground sounds fun, and viruses tend to spread less effectively outdoors. However, emerging evidence suggests that in a laboratory, COVID-19 can stay on different surfaces for hours to days.  Therefore, it would be impossible to sanitize these parks on a hourly/daily basis.  Play will be at your own risk. 

If it’s possible, consider a walk outside or adventure in nature as alternatives.
