Playgrounds in unincorporated Clark County are reopening months after closing due to COVID-19.
Clark County Public Works closed play structures in late March. But county Public Health and state guidelines recently recommended reopening them, according to a news release from the county.
Restrooms and washing facilities are not open at every park, and many will close as the weather gets colder.
County officials recommend the following for those who wish to use the playgrounds:
• Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds before and after.
• Avoid touching your face.
• Maintain a distance of 6 feet from those whom you don’t live with.
• Wear a mask.
• Don’t go if you’re exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19.
• Bring hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
• Follow U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance on personal hygiene.
• Avoid crowded parks.
