The Newton Recreation Commission is committed to providing a safe and protective environment for you and your family. We look forward to continuing to serve the needs of our community during these challenging times.
We will continue the enforcement of precautions as necessary to preserve the health of our community. The NRC will follow guidelines for safety that the Kansas Recreation and Parks Association (KRPA) has outlined with the approval of Governor Kelly. We ask that every participant or fan attending an event or activity wear a mask into our facilities when 6 foot social distancing cannot be maintained. Hand sanitizer is also provided in several key locations around the Activity Center for our patrons convenience and protection.
During our sporting events, we will require our coaches and supervisors to practice safety measures according to the guidelines that were provided to us by KRPA. We continue to stay in close contact with the Harvey County Health Department to make sure that we are following our local guidelines. It is also important to understand that an increase of COVID-19 exposure in our community could require stricter measures to be implemented. Please be patient as we mutually work towards the best possible situation for our community.
We look forward to seeing you. Be safe.
