Playground & Athletic Fields / Courts Best Practices During the COVID-19 Outbreak
As recommended by the Municipal Insurance Carrier:

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy’s Emergency Declaration of March 16, 2020 placed a limit of 50 people for all social functions and “gatherings” due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has since lowered the number of persons to 10. The purpose of the Governor’s action is to limit social contact in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus.

Consistent with the Governor’s Declaration, the Safety Director’s office recommends that playgrounds, athletic fields and courts, and similar park facilities that encourage group activities should be closed and stay closed until the Governor lifts the Emergency Declaration.
The Safety Director’s recommendation for closure of these facilities does not apply to passive recreation areas.

As noted above, passive areas such as nature walks and peripheral jogging / walking paths do not tend to attract ‘groups’ and can, at least for now, be left open.

The Safety Director will closely monitor the situation and provide additional guidance as is warranted.
