A new reality is coming to stores and parks this weekend.
Fresno County parks will not be open. Target and Walmart are placing more physical limits on you than ever before.
COVID-19 continues to intrude on almost every facet of life.
Fresno County Parks Closing. City Closes Dog Parks.
Officials said Friday that all Fresno County parks are being shuttered “to protect the health of the entire community and to promote social distancing.”
The closures are immediate and will remain in effect until further notice, county spokesman Jordan Scott said.
City parks remain open and residents can still visit for physical activity such as walking, jogging, and cycling as long as they practice social distancing.
However, the city is closing all dog parks.
In addition, the city is closing basketball and tennis courts where possible.
Walmart’s New Shopping Limitations
Starting Saturday, Walmart will limit the number of customers who can be in a store at once. Stores will now allow no more than five customers for each 1,000 square feet at a given time, roughly 20% percent of a store’s capacity.
Walmart Executive VP/CEO Dacona Smith issued a statement Friday outlining how the process will work.
Our associates’ and customers’ safety are everything to us. From new store hours, to cleaning, sanitizing, and the 6’ rule, Walmart Radio DJs are breaking it down for you.
