Our Maintenance Staff Are taking a page and a post from the Regina Public School Board and are closing the Vibank Regional School playground.
COVID-19 virus can linger on surfaces such as plastic and metal for several days and could potentially be transmitted by playing in school playgrounds and touching playground equipment that others have touched. This includes slides, swings, teeter-totters, jungle gyms and other equipment. None of this equipment is being cleaned or sanitized while schools are closed and can pose a health risk to anyone that uses them.
Please do not use this play equipment until further notice.
It is difficult to tell young people that they cannot play and is perhaps one of the hardest parts of the current requirements to practice social distancing.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
