The city’s more than 800 playgrounds and play structures are open now. City staff will be visiting all playgrounds over the coming days to post updated signage with public health guidance. Outdoor playground equipment will not be sanitized. Toronto Public Health encourages children to play outdoors with caregiver guidelines to help children play safely. The guidelines include proper hand hygiene for children before and after using the playground, physical distancing, a mask or face covering for children over the age of two if physical distancing is not possible, and monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19. If a playground is busy, Toronto Public Health recommends finding another park or coming back later.
