June 1 - 7 Updates

Playgrounds reopening June 10June 5 - Worthington Playgrounds will Reopen June 10

Worthington playgrounds will be reopening June 10th, now that Governor DeWine has announced plans for additional recreation and entertainment facility reopenings with new safety guidelines in place. Parks employees will be inspecting equipment and disinfecting high touch surface areas prior to reopening. While staff will be cleaning equipment periodically, it will be the discretion of parents to judge their comfort level of children playing on playground equipment that will be used by multiple households. We ask that parents monitor their children while using the equipment, bring hand sanitizer and encourage hand washing. Families are also reminded to practice safe social distancing. Signs will be posted with additional guidelines.

The Worthington Community Center’s fitness floor is currently in phase one of its reopening plan and is open for people to use by reservation. The Community Center will continue to open additional areas of the building in phases. Community Center reopening updates will be posted here.  The Griswold Center remains closed, as it is a senior center and will follow guidelines related to those facilities. 

Governor Announces Additional Reopening Dates

Governor DeWine announced that the following sectors are permitted to reopen on June 19, 2020:

  • Casinos
  • Racinos
  • Amusement parks
  • Water parks

Governor DeWine also authorized the Memorial Golf Tournament to be held from July 13th to 19th.

"In all of these cases, these sectors have come up with plans that reduce the number of people, provide for sanitation, and in some cases, provide for one-way traffic," said Governor DeWine. "They are elaborate plans that we believe are consistent with protecting the public."
