Message from LA County Parks
For the most recent updates, please visit https://parks.lacounty.gov/covid-19.
With the evolving situation surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we would like to provide an update and information for our program participants and their families. As of today, there have been no cases with known association with locations and programs of the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation.
As ever, the health and safety of our program participants, parks guests, staff, and community are our top priority. We are working closely with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) to ensure that our Parks community receives credible information and guidance during this challenging time.
At this time, we will continue to operate essential programs, like the After-School Program, Tiny Tots, and Nutrition Programs, as scheduled. We know that you rely on our programs as consistent and crucial resources, and we are committed to continuing to support core programs throughout Los Angeles County.
Starting Wednesday, March 18, the senior lunch program will transition to a frozen meal pick up program, and all other senior programs will be cancelled until further notice.
We will be cancelling all large-scale events of 250 people or more at all Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation locations through March 31. This decision follows guidance from State and local health officials to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
For sports programs, we ask that each player be accompanied by only one parent/guardian when attending practices or games. This social distancing measure is meant to limit the exposure in our community and stop the spread of disease.
We will continue to assess daily our operations and consult with Public Health for recommendations and possible further changes. We will keep you informed of any necessary changes to our programs. We appreciate your support and understanding as we adapt to this fluid situation.
In the meantime, we encourage you to visit the Public Health website for information, available in multiple languages, on COVID-19: http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus.
We also strongly encourage you to take everyday actions to prevent the spread of germs.
- Stay home when sick. Stay home for at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever.
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Limit close contact with people who are sick.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact (626) 588-5364 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
