City of Galesburg Playgrounds Open

June 26, 2020 07:21 PM
Governor Pritzer issued a new executive order today, June 26, 2020, which allows local governments to use discretion on whether to open playgrounds. As the cases of COVID-19 in Knox County have been low overall and the cases have shown no trends of spiking, the City of Galesburg has made the decision to open all City-owned playgrounds, effective immediately with the following restrictions:
  • Maximum limit of people in the playground area is 50.
  • Individuals on the playground should try and stay at least 6 feet apart from each other.
  • If individuals cannot physically distance, a face covering should be worn by anyone age 2 or older.
  • Wash or sanitize hands regularly.
  • By CDC guidance, the playground equipment will NOT be disinfected. Use the equipment at your own risk.
