For youth sports, the only allowable use of city fields currently is for practices. These practices must be socially distanced, with participants keeping six feet apart. Also, the practices cannot be a gathering of more than 50 people. There will be no sharing of equipment.

Additionally, the city says it is reducing the number of practices to keep from having large groups waiting to use fields while another group is finishing with no concessions allowed at city fields until further notice.

The city says it also currently working on plans for the reopening of community centers, other facilities and programs.
