In order to protect the health and safety of our community and help reduce the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the current closure of the Blacksburg Recreation Center, Blacksburg Aquatic Center, Christiansburg Recreation Center and Christiansburg Aquatic Center will be extended through April 30, 2020. This extended closure also complies with Gov. Ralph Northam’s statewide closure of non-essential businesses and recreation facilities.
The Town of Blacksburg is disinfecting playground equipment weekly.
The Town Christiansburg is also disinfecting equipment on a weekly basis, resulting in temporary park closures during those operations.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has flagged mental health as a top concern associated with the COVID-19 outbreak. It’s true that social distancing can take a toll on our mental health during these times. While our parks, playgrounds and trails provide an opportunity to clear our heads with physical activity and fresh air, there are a few common sense steps we can all take for a safer outdoor experience.
Our goal is to keep parks, playgrounds, trails and other open spaces accessible as long as it is safe to do so.
If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider or the Health Department immediately. Do not go to the emergency room until you have been advised to do so. The New River Valley Health District has activated a local public health hotline at 540-267-8240.
The Montgomery County Public Health Task Force will provide updates as they become available via social media and online at www.montva.com/coronavirus.
