PARD REOPENING PLAN DURING COVID-19 CLOSURES


Transition Between Phases ✓ Effectively meet public health indicators as recommended by White House Coronavirus Task Force and CDC Gating Criteria, State of Texas, and local public health officials. ✓ Continued downward trajectory in cases/deaths and upward trajectory in screening, testing and treating (determined by state and local public health officials). ✓ Conduct a risk assessment of all spaces, facilities and programs. ✓ Ensure sufficient park and recreation department staff capacity and budget to support reopening for Phases 1-4. ✓ Prepare and train staff for Phases 1-4 to ensure their health and safety. ✓ Continue to support essential services to community – food distributions, blood and plasma drives, etc. in all Phases. ✓ Assess capacity of critical partners in Phases 1-4. ✓ Secure cleaning and disinfection supplies, personal protective equipment (PPE) and establish standard operating procedures (SOPs) and associated training for all Phases.

✓ Community awareness and education of public health measures of each Phase. ✓ Ensure sufficient park and recreation department staff capacity and budget to support reopening for each Phase. ✓ Be prepared to revert to previous phases if transmission increases.

Outdoor park and recreation open spaces that allow for physical distancing can open to public for single use or household for passive use activities

There are several considerations that must be made in all phases, including staff protection measures, staff capacity, policies regarding personal protective equipment (PPE), training and communications.
