Extended Closure of Gaithersburg Facilites, Services and Programs


The City of Gaithersburg has extended the order to keep City facilities shuttered and limit in-person services through at least May 31, 2020. While select services remain available online, there will be no in-person events, programs, classes, sports, performances, or non-essential meetings through at least May 31. Traditional summer camps and other recreation programs have been cancelled and the Gaithersburg Water Park will not open for Memorial Day weekend. The City is in the final stages of creating a Phased Service Restoration Plan for all City programs and services and it will be made available on the City's website upon completion.

This blog was not posted at the scheduled time. Since most of my reblogs and blogs are scheduled in advance, this is very discouraging. It is easy to see why so many members are leaving ActiveRain.

Good morning, Roy... this is certainly less than positive news. Then again, I'm of the school of thought that it's time to reopen responsibly and let people build herd immunity.

Good morning Roy. Once again Chicago will remain closed into the month of June. The new question, what year? Enjoy your day!

The CDC estimates more than a third of coronavirus patients don’t have any symptoms at all, and 40% of virus transmission happens before people feel sick.

For the rest of Memorial Day weekend, Arlington National Cemetery will remain closed to the general public but will be open to family pass holders to visit their loved ones’ gravesites.

Good Morning Gaithersburg!
The weather this weekend looks ideal for some safe, socially distanced outdoor activities! Montgomery Parks has extended their parkway closures through May 25th. These road closures open up more space for pedestrians & cyclists to safely enjoy the outdoors! 🚴‍♂️

It is really sad to see everything closed, the world really is in a sad place right now.  I have no idea what is true and not true about the whole situation.

Roy, This message will probably disappoint many Gaithersburg residents, but it's better to be safe!

May 31st isn't that far off.  Hopefully Gaithersburg facilities and services will be able to open then, or not long after!
