The city of St. Paul said Wednesday night that it is closing playgrounds, sports courts and skate parks to help combat the spread of COVID-19.
In a news release, the city said the closures come in response to the recent increased demand for use of recreational amenities on warm-weather days, combined with a concern for public safety because social distancing cannot be managed at such sites.
