Closed Municipal Fields 

Municipal and school fields and playgrounds have been closed to public use in an effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. We understand that this is extremely difficult on these beautiful spring days with no school and no organized sports, for kids and parents alike. Please understand this was not an easy decision for the town to make but it was made in the best interest to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. Some studies show there is a possibility that the virus can live for up to 3 days on plastic and steel, two common playground materials. An open field and a soccer ball is an easy way for kids to forget to practice social distancing and reduce gatherings. We ask that families focus on outside activities such as walking, running, biking and hiking with people living in the same household as alternative options. As always, we appreciate all efforts that our residents are making together to reduce the spread of this disease. We all have a role to play and we thank you for yours.
