WHEREAS, in recent times, the State of Indiana, the United States of America, and our fellow nations have been challenged by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic. Pursuant to Indiana Code § 10-14-3-12(a), on March 6, 2020, Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb signed Executive Order 20-02 declaring a public health disaster emergency in Indiana attributable to COVID-19. Since that time, the Governor has issued numerous other executive orders further addressing the pandemic. In line with the State of Indiana’s efforts, the purpose and intent of this order is for the City of Plymouth to address the use of certain recreation areas during the ongoing local public health emergency.
NOW THEREFORE, by virtue of the authority vested in me as the Mayor of the City of Plymouth, it is hereby ordered as follows:
1. I remind everyone of the Governor’s order closing all playgrounds. All City of Plymouth Parks remain open and people are encouraged to enjoy time outdoors within the parks responsibly while maintaining safe social distancing. However, in order to promote safe practices, at this time, all basketball courts, tennis/pickleball courts, shuffleboard courts, volleyball courts, soccer fields, skate parks, and other recreation venues not specifically enumerated where groups might gather to participate in organized sports of any kind, within City of Plymouth Parks are now closed.
2. This Executive Order is effective as of 7:30 p.m. (EDT), Monday, April 6, 2020, and will expire seven (7) days thereafter, but its effectiveness may be extended by further action.
DATED this 6th day of April, 2020.
. CITY OF PLYMOUTH, INDIANA
