Village Council has made the difficult decision to close all playgrounds in our Village in lieu of the COVID-19 virus. As you may be aware, many municipalities in Alberta have taken this approach in order to control the spread of this virus. Alberta Health Services supports this decision and provided us with the following information:
The current evidence indicates that this virus may last for days on play equipment (plastic/metal) so closing the playgrounds appears to be a prudent step right now as children cannot stop touching their face or putting their hands in their mouth. It also reduces the chance that kids will play with other kids thus reducing the spread.
Thank you for your understanding of this decision and your cooperation in keeping our children and residents safe.
Village of Beiseker.
