School playgrounds re-opened

School playgrounds re-opened
Posted on 05/28/2020

As permitted by the Chief Medical Officer of Health as part of the Province of Alberta's relaunch strategy, Aspen View Public Schools will re-open its school playgrounds on Friday, May 29, 2020 with some restrictions.

Playground users must comply with restrictions on gatherings, and maintain a physical distance of 2 metres between individuals not from the same household.

Playground surfaces are not sanitized. Users should wash their hands before and after using playground equipment.

Use playgrounds at your own risk, and be aware that failure to comply with restrictions and precautions may results in playground closure.

To ensure the safety of children, families and communities, individuals should take precautions when visiting playgrounds:

● Those who are sick or have symptoms related to COVID-19 must not use playgrounds.
● Encourage children to avoid sharing toys or sports equipment and limit contact with individuals outside of their household or cohort family.
● Clean and disinfect toys and sports equipment prior to and after use.
● Caution should be taken around playground equipment.
● Practice proper hand hygiene.

○ Wash your hands frequently.
○ Refrain from touching your face with unclean hands.
○ Carry and use hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol content immediately before and after using playground equipment.

● Consider limiting children and other members of your household to only visiting playgrounds that are close to your home. This will help limit the number of people your family may come into contact with.
● Maintain physical distancing and limit congregating with other people when entering and leaving the playground and supervising children playing (e.g. paths, benches, picnic areas).
● Individuals should maintain physical distancing when returning to vehicles or homes.
