The Aviano playgrounds and tot lots are currently open on a first-come first-serve basis. Residents visiting the playgrounds are encouraged to take preemptive measures such as hand washing and hand sanitizing during and after visiting these amenities. If you or your children are showing symptoms of an illness, we ask that you please refrain from using the playgrounds. Residents utilizing these amenities are asked to wipe down equipment thoroughly with disinfecting wipes before and after use and are using them at their own risk. Health experts also are urging people to practice “social distancing,” which is the idea of maintaining a roughly 6-foot distance between other people.
