What is a gathering? – A message from the Mayor
Dear Louisville Residents,
Saturday was the first day of Boulder County’s Safer at Home phase in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. There’s a lot of information out there (the state and county links are below), but the message is still to keep practicing social distancing by staying home when you can and keeping at least 6 feet apart when you can’t, practicing good hand hygiene, and wearing a mask when you can’t socially distance, such as inside of shops or on crowded trails.
One important topic is group gatherings. Gatherings of 10 people or fewer are now allowed – but remember that when attending a gathering, you must still remain 6 feet apart from people who aren’t members of your household. And let’s continue to wear facial coverings to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
Reopening of some outdoor recreational facilities
On Monday, our tennis courts, basketball courts, and dog off leash areas reopened with restrictions. These restrictions include recreating only with members of your household for tennis and basketball courts and staying home if you’re sick. While you spend time outdoors to take care of your mental and physical health, please remember that restrictions are in place to protect you and our community. We’re awaiting further guidance from Public Health about how and when the City can safely reopen other outdoor recreational facilities.
Library curbside service starts next week
The Louisville Public Library is busy preparing for the new curbside service for Louisville and Superior residents, which starts next Wednesday (May 20). If you don’t have a library card, you can apply for a card on the library’s website where you can also access lots of free online resources like daily Story Time videos.
We’re doing a great job, Louisville. Let’s keep it up.
