City of Elkhart closing a pool and spray park in response to COVID-19
ELKHART, Ind. – The City of Elkhart has decided to close the Pierre Moran Pool & McNaughton Spray Park effective immediately as of July 6th. According to officials, the recent outbreak of coronavirus in Elkhart that warranted action from the state has led to this decision.
“This was a tough decision. But given where we are with this virus, it was the right one for Elkhart. Our staff prepared for weeks to ensure they took all the necessary measures and they did an excellent job. Unfortunately, the environment of the pool and the spray park is not conducive to wearing masks, distancing, and mitigation. Our numbers are climbing and we must do all we can to slow the spread of this virus,” said Mayor Rod Roberson.
