Fields, Playgrounds Closed

Due to an increasing number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Carlsbad, 11 as of Saturday, the City of Carlsbad is further limiting access to community locations where maintaining a safe 6 foot distance is more difficult. These include:

Athletic fields
Basketball courts
Dog parks
Pickleball courts
Picnic amenities
Skate parks
Tennis courts

Under Governor Gavin Newsom’s ‘stay at home’ order issued on March 19, all individuals living in the State of California were ordered to stay at home, except for essential outings to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job.

While outdoor recreation is still allowed, the order outlines that it’s contingent on maintaining a safe social distance of 6 feet from people who aren’t in the same household.

In support of social distancing protocols and practices, the City of Carlsbad continues to provide essential services as part of a comprehensive COVID-19 response that the city has been preparing for since late January.

The city has set up a dedicated web page for information about how COVID-19 affects Carlsbad: www.carlsbadca.gov/COVID19
