Effective Friday, May 1, 2020, the public parks, under the administration of St. Martin Parish Government, will be re-opened for public use including the children’s playground equipment. Social distancing in all areas SHALL APPLY, and the 10-person limitation rule (parent and children) shall apply to the playground equipment. Therefore, parents are strongly reminded to monitor their children’s activities.
All pavilions at the Parks shall remain closed.
All tennis courts, basketball courts, volleyball courts, and ball fields shall also remain closed.
This afternoon in a teleconference with all the mayors, Parish President Cedars discussed this matter with them. Most of the municipalities will adopt the same action. However, for understandable and valid reasons, one or more of the municipalities may take different actions.
The outdoor activities now being allowed at our Parks pose no COVID-19 health risks according to the medical community. Indeed, at his press conference on Monday, Governor John Bel Edwards encouraged citizens to get outdoors and exercise. See you at the track!
