Community Recreation Centers remain on the states Continued Closure list

 Arts, Parks and Recreation Department COVID 19 Update: Community Recreation Centers remain on the states Continued Closure list.  

 


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Athens, Ohio Arts, Parks and Recreation Department 

 

Community Recreation Centers have not yet been authorized to reopen. Once the Governor announces his approval to reopen community recreation centers an opening date will be established.  


The Athens Community Center reopening will be contingent on our capacity to meet all safety, sanitizing and distancing requirements, and the ability to secure products and equipment to sanitize and modify the facility as necessary.     

Our top priority is to the health and safety of our patrons and staff. The department continues to work to provide services in a new way at the facility with modifications that insure confidence in best practices.  

More details will be provided as we get more information on opening Community Recreation Centers from public health officials and the Governor’s office. The Governor’s ‘Safer at Home’ order is extended until May 29th, along with the Responsible Restart Ohio

Please contact Vanessa Scott vscott@ci.athens.oh.us or Erin Helms ehelms@ci.athens.oh.us if you have any questions.
