College Park to Continue Following Health Professionals' Guidelines for Covid-19

Parks Reopen; City Hall Continues with Temp Checks, Masks & Social Distancing


College Park, GA (Friday, June 19, 2020) - The City of College Park announced today it will continue to employ evidence-based strategies regarding City Hall operations amid the Covid-19 pandemic.  This comes in response to weekly updates provided by state and local health officials. 


Even though the number of hospitalizations relating to Covid-19 has been trending downward since May 1, the Georgia Department of Public Health maintains that medically fragile Georgians should continue to shelter in place through June 30th, and residents of long term care facilities should shelter in place through July 12.   


There’s more promising news about College Park, according to an epidemiology report by the Fulton County Board of Health.  Covid-19 cases in College Park have decreased by 53% within the past 30 days. 


However, due to spikes in the number of positive cases of Covid-19 in rural Georgia, and in surrounding metro regions, the City of College Park will maintain the following safety precautions regarding City Hall operations until further notice:  guests, visitors and utility customers will be subjected to temperature checks, and must wear a protective mask upon entering the building;  College Park also enforces social distancing inside City Hall; meetings to conduct business not related to utilities will be held by appointment only


On Thursday, June 17, the City of College Park’s Recreation & Cultural Arts Department officially reopened parks and other recreational facilities in town; visitors now have access to playgrounds, pavilions, basketball courts, tennis courts and walking trails.
