The city has asked organized sporting groups to submit a safety plan following CDC guidelines, according to the news release, and will issue permits for organized sports once the plans are approved.

The following recreational amenities remain closed:

“Shutting down operations was a fast and needed response to the COVID pandemic. Reopening the city and its operations has to be methodical and thought out,” Fire Chief Jerry Forte said in the news release. “... We look forward to getting back to the summer pastimes and the traditions of families in the city.”
