Pacifica’s 12 city playgrounds reopened Nov. 4 after being closed since March due to the pandemic.
Mike Perez, director of the Parks, Beaches and Recreation Department, said hand sanitizer stations are set up in the playgrounds, and they are disinfected at least once a week.
Safety guidelines are in place, too. Playground visitors older than 2 years old must wear a mask covering their mouth and nose. Children must be supervised. A physical distance of six feet must be maintained with people of other households, and children should not crowd.
No food or drink will be allowed. Visitors are asked to wash or sanitize hands before and after each visit and to bring hand sanitizer. Playground capacity signs will be posted.
City officials ask that visitors limit their time on the playground to 30 minutes so others have a chance. Elderly individuals are advised not to visit a playground and others should stay home if they are experiencing any signs of illness, no matter how mild.
