Walton County Recreation Department to Suspend All Organized Recreational Activities through March 27, 2020
As a precautionary response to COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Walton County Recreation Department will be suspending all organized recreational activities starting at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, March 13, 2020, until Friday, March 27, 2020. We will also be closing and restricting access to community centers, including Criswell Park, Felker Park, Meridian Park, and Nowell Gym, during this time (Meridian Park will remain open as scheduled for early voting only). We will keep the public abreast of any changes in the schedule and update everyone as the situation changes.
Though there are no confirmed cases in Walton County at this time, our top priority is to keep our athletes, parents, and employees safe and limit the exposure to COVID-19. We will continue to evaluate the situation going forward and continue to take precautions as recommended by the Georgia Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control. We encourage everyone to practice preventative measures and visit the CDC website (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) for more information regarding COVID-19.
