COVID-19 Disclaimer
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.

Get Outdoors. Be Active. Play.

Need something for the kids to do at home? In light of COVID-19, the Kerrville Parks and Recreation Department will be posting fun online activities for children to complete. Follow us on Instagram (@cityofkerrville) for the latest updates on activities.
