Playground equipment closing notification

To help minimize the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the City of Coffeyville has closed the use of City playground and/or recreation equipment to the public effective immediately. The available science suggests that the virus can live for quite a while on surfaces, particularly plastic and stainless steel… which likely characterizes most playground and/or recreation equipment.  The City of Coffeyville is unable to clean and disinfect the playground and/or recreation equipment after each use. 

Children are not likely to follow the procedures needed for hygiene (washing hands, not touching face), and they are equally unlikely to adhere to social distancing protocols.

City parks remain open and residents can enjoy the fields, trails, and other amenities, but not playground and/or recreation equipment. The City of Coffeyville reminds parents and children to practice social distancing and wash their hands after any play situation. 

The City of Coffeyville maintenance team members will be taping off all playgrounds starting with our most popular parks effective immediately, and posting signage at each site alerting residents to these playground closures.
