Playgrounds are OPEN!

Playgrounds reopen today! We are proud to announce we are reopening playgrounds today! Release the kiddos! Limit 25 kids and adults in one area, so parents, pick your playground carefully. Everyone needs to continue to practice six-foot physical distancing from others, cover coughs and sneezes, and be sure to wash and sanitize your hands! We’ve heard creative ideas from parents using soapy washcloths and water bottles. Playgrounds are not disinfected regularly, but the Springfield-Greene County Health Department advises the virus may be susceptible to UV light and humidity. Most important: stay home if you or the kids feel sick at all. We know that playgrounds reopening is a relief to parents and kids alike, but please continue to be cautious and stay safe.
