Playground Equipment Safety After the Pandemic
As we’re all aware, COVID-19 has changed the way we live life. We have seen California parks and recreation areas suspend their amenities due to safety concerns. Many of us have been quarantining to flatten the bell curve. Many states have been adjusting their shelter-in-place guidelines, allowing for modified operations that adhere to the CDC’s recommendations in an effort to prioritize health and safety. How will playground equipment fit into the reopening plan for California?
Per covid19.ca.gov, California is currently in Stage 2 of reopening the state; that said, there will be a point when kids can get back out there and enjoy the thrill and sensation of being on a swing again. Of course, when that happens, safety will be the top priority. How should we play on playground equipment in the wake of COVID-19? Let’s take a look.
