Vancouver Park Board Closes Playgrounds, Reminds Community to Adhere to Social DistancingCity of Vancouver
VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Park Board is closing its playgrounds across the city and reminding Vancouverites about the importance of social distancing when visiting parks and beaches during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Playgrounds are being closed in an effort to minimize public gatherings and the potential of risk to the community.
People not in self-isolation do not need to remain indoors. However, everyone needs to avoid being in close contact with people in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. To protect yourself and others:
Protect yourself and others
- Keep at least 2 metres (6 feet) from others
- Visit parks and beaches during less busy times
- Limit the number of visits to parks and beaches to provide opportunities for others to access
- Avoid gathering in groups
- Limit high-touch recreational activities such as volleyball or frisbee
- Wash or sanitize hands after touching communal surfaces
- Anyone feeling sick, especially if coughing or experiencing a fever, please stay at home
The Park Board and City of Vancouver continue to work with public health officials and multiple partners on the COVID-19 response.
