The City of Kalamunda has closed all playgrounds, skate parks and outdoor equipment in City reserves to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Mayor Margaret Thomas today announced all playgrounds, skate parks and outdoor equipment areas in City reserves have been closed to the community for everyone’s health and safety.

“We are closing playgrounds, outdoor fitness areas and skate parks to slow the spread of Coronavirus and save lives,”

Mayor Thomas said the playground and skate park closures would assist the local community’s social distancing.  “Social distancing is the best way to fight coronavirus. The City is closing outdoor fitness areas, playgrounds and skate parks so that we can shut down non-essential activities, and make sure people can stay two metres apart. This way, we can each do our part to halt the spread of COVID-19.”

Mayor Thomas said the City welcomed the new federal government coronavirus app and Whatsapp channel. “I urge our community to sign up to the federal government coronavirus app, which is available on Apple and Android devices,

“It’s a trusted source of information about how we can protect each other, as well as stay up to date on current restrictions on social gatherings, and how to access support.”

The City advises that infrastructure such as public toilets remain open at this time, the City regularly undertakes cleaning of these facilities, but encourages all residents to consider the best measures for their public health and well being at such facilities.
