Please open parks and libraries! Case numbers support the transition, and social distancing and avoidance can be maintained easily by those who may be still at risk or concerned.
I am a homeschooling parent of 3 boys and request all public parks and libraries to open in full capacity. Citizens should have the freedom and opportunity to socialize, exercise, and enjoy nature just as they are able to go grocery shopping (touching produce, etc.), walk around the mall (w/zero capacity limits), and participate in other recreational activities; museums, spas, movies, etc. Closing parks and their amenities is not based on science, but as a pawn for political motives. Thanks.
I'm a home owner here in Phoenix, and I would greatly appreciate the council reopening the athletic fields and parks for league reservations. My kickball league follows strict covid safety guidance including masks, and distancing. We played in the fall without any cases arising from the field. After a long year of this pandemic we really need more options to get outside for our physical and mental health.
