Pandemic Industry Guidance
The Voice of Pennsylvania Recreation and Parks
updated June 1, 2020
PRPS is committed to helping our members and partners take necessary steps to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the parks and public spaces they manage, and make well-informed decisions on adaptive and emergency operations.
PRPS urges its members to frequently refer to and follow the recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as guidance is continually updated as additional information becomes available.
Local park and recreation professionals fill a key role in community health and wellness opportunities every day. PRPS supports their leadership efforts and encourages its members and partners to work with their local health departments to review emergency response plans, practice routine environmental cleaning, and keeping their workplaces safe.
