The Litchfield Community Center will reopen to the public Monday at 9 a.m. after being shuttered for more than three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Required protocol will be in place to protect staff and visitors. All staff, visitors and participants will be required to practice social distancing, wear a mask or facial covering of mouth and nose, and sign in upon arrival. Hand sanitizer will be stationed around the property.
“We are committed to giving our community a space and place that is safe and comfortable to participate and enjoy familiar programs and activities, as well as some special offerings,” community center Executive Director Roberta Andrulis Mette wrote in a message to the community. “We also welcome your ideas.”
Three tents have been erected for outdoor activities and the center’s lawn and patio will be open for activities. Restrooms will be open and sanitized regularly. Public access to the building will be limited through Aug. 30.
Staff and the center’s board of directors reserve the right to deny entry or terminate participation of any visitor or program attendee who does not follow state requirements, local health authority guidelines and the center’s protocol for social distancing, the wearing of masks or facial coverings, and all other criteria.
