The County says it will monitor future case rates to determine when these facilities will be reopened for public use. In addition, the County Health Officer Dr. Eric Sergienko is recommending any gathering of 50 or more people be postponed. On August 6, Public health recommended all gatherings be postponed and strongly recommend that gatherings of more than fifty be postponed. They stated “The larger the gathering, the greater the risk that someone in the group will be transmitting the virus. If it is not possible to postpone, consider measures to mitigate the risk. Vaccination, testing, wearing of masks, reduced group size, and moving events outdoors all help reduce the risk.”
The Youth Centers are open, with safety protocols in place.
