Cannon Street Playground & Basketball Court Closed
Due to the Coronavirus, the Town will be closing the Cannon Street Playground and Basketball Court effective immediately.
Studies have shown that the Coronavirus can survive for days on plastic and metal surfaces commonly used on playground equipment.
Delaware State Parks are also closing playgrounds as well as several other municipalities.
The virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is stable for several hours to days in aerosols and on surfaces, according to a new study from National Institutes of Health, CDC, UCLA and Princeton University scientists in The New England Journal of Medicine. The scientists found that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was detectable in aerosols for up to three hours, up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel.
