Westchester County Executive George Latimer said, “We appreciate everyone’s patience while we kept our playgrounds closed to ensure the safety of the children of Westchester. With the decline of active cases of COVID-19, we are excited to bring a sense of normalcy, recreation and fun back to the community. We ask that all parents, guardians and children follow the guidelines outlined in ‘Playground Safe.’”

As part of “Playground Safe,” parents and guardians choosing to allow children to use playground equipment are asked to follow these guidelines:

  • Do not visit if you are sick, tested positive for COVID-19, or were recently (within 14 days) exposed to COVID-19.
  • Do not use the playground if it appears crowded.
  • Do wear a mask if you are over the age of two and able to medically tolerate when not able to maintain social distance.
  • Do maintain at least six feet social distance from people you don’t live with.
  • Do bring and use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Playgrounds will be sanitized twice daily.
