Today, the Spokane Regional Health District ordered the closure of all play structures and/or playground equipment. This follows the Washington statewide emergency proclamation signed by Governor Inslee on March 16, temporarily shutting down restaurants, bars, recreational and entertainment facilities until at least March 31.
Playgrounds are Closed
Today we will close all playgrounds across our County under order of the Spokane Regional Health District, to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
Public Open Space & Parks are Open
Under current orders, green space, parks, trails, and natural areas remain open for public use at this time.
Please follow the CDC’s guidelines on how to stop the spread of germs when choosing to use these recreational spaces. Maintain at least 6 feet of social distance, and use them with 10 or fewer people. Please use hand sanitizer/wash your hands before and after use. Avoid using these spaces if you’re experiencing symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who is.
We unfortunately do not have the resources to disinfect, multiple times per day, all handrails, dog waste stations, and restrooms across our County. Please follow the CDC guidelines when using these recreational spaces, to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. You may find some restrooms closed, we apologize and appreciate your understanding at this time.
Safety is our top priority, and if additional closures are recommended by the Spokane Regional Health District, Governor Inslee, or President Trump, we will communicate with you. Thank you for your ongoing community effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our region.
