Concord, California – The city of Concord opened its 19 playgrounds following new guidance from state public health officials today.
All public playgrounds that are fully outdoors are allowed to reopen, according to a list of new rules the state issued this week.
Visitors ages 2 and up will be required to wear a face mask while at the playground and should maintain six feet of distance between each other. State public health officials also suggest visitors limit their time at a playground to 30 minutes.
Concord Public Works staff inspected all of the city’s playgrounds Wednesday in anticipation of their reopening and installed signage laying out the rules for using a playground and reducing the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Concord officials also reminded residents to follow Contra Costa County’s ongoing public health guidance for frequent hand-washing, physical distancing and staying home when sick.
