City of Sheboygan COVID-19 Update

Categories: Parks & Forestry

With the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s ruling striking down most of the Safer at Home order, the City of Sheboygan has an update regarding city parks and facilities. Coronavirus COVID-19 is very contagious and can be fatal. Our goal is to encourage proper best practice safety precautions to ensure the community continues to stay safe.

The City and its citizens must keep up the effort in containing COVID-19 and not jeopardize the progress already made by following the proper safety measures.

The City of Sheboygan has the responsibility to provide facilities that are safe and not potentially increase the risk of exposure thus protecting the community. Currently, the Parks Division of the Department of Public Works does not have the resources to increase the cleaning standards established by the CDC. As a result, the department is working on a phased approach in efforts to open the park facilities. Below is the tentative schedule that is subject to change at any time:

The following should remain in effect until May 25, 2020:

  • City Parks will remain open
  • City Park playgrounds will remain closed
  • City Park buildings, shelters, and restrooms will remain closed

Starting on May 26, the Parks Division will open playgrounds, limited facilities available to rent, provided gatherings meet the CDC guidelines for proper health and safety. The Department is encouraging residents to bring their own hand sanitizer for added protection. Please check the website for future updates.
