Parks Could Pose Virus Danger

Todd PittengerMarch 22, 2020

Salina City Parks are still open, but those using them are advised to do so with caution.

According to the city, although parks remain open for outdoor activities and exercise, users are advised to avoid contact with common surfaces, playground equipment, and benches.

Plastic is used extensively within City of Salina playgrounds and COVID-19 can live up to three days on its surface, according to a new study from the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and Princeton University scientists in The New England Journal of Medicine.

For questions or concerns regarding this matter, contact the Salina Parks & Recreation Department at (785) 309-5765.
