The Kerrville Parks and Recreation Department would like to stress the importance of being mindful of social distancing when visiting City parks and facilities. Staff are working diligently to provide extra sanitation to high contact areas / facilities.
The following changes have been made to operations:
- The Parks and Recreation Department Office has restricted in-person interactions. Please contact us at (830) 257-7300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has been declared a worldwide pandemic. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.
The Texas Governor, pursuant to Executive Order GA-23 and a subsequent proclamation which amended that order, has defined “amateur sporting events”, “youth sports programs”, and “recreational sports programs for adults” as “covered services”, meaning that such activities may now take place, subject to conditions. In addition, the governor has also found in general parks and their amenities are “essential activities” and should be opened to the public.
Pursuant to all these activities, the state has issued “minimum health standard protocols”. The protocols apply not only to the operators of sports and parks facilities, such as the City of Kerrville, but they also apply to participants, families, and club teams and they may be amended. Everyone has a part to play in terms of responsibilities and safe practices.
The city and, where applicable its operators and licensees, are following the protocols and have put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, no one and certainly not the city can guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, by attending any program or event or using any city facility, you may increase your child(ren)s risk of contracting COVID-19.
