Latest Response Information 

The County of Sacramento on June 12 amended its public-health order, further loosening restrictions on certain businesses and activities as Sacramento moves into “Stage 3” of California’s COVID-19 recovery road map.

Message from Mario Lara, director of the City’s Youth, Parks and Community Enrichment department:
“As summer approaches, we realize that people and families are anxious to enjoy their favorite activities in Sacramento and we’re committed to ensuring that can be done with public health as a priority. We’re also excited to respond to the newest public health order by increasing access to our parks and recreation facilities.”

Here is what YPCE will now offer under the recently amended health order:

Pools can now reopen with modifications. The City is prepared to provide limited modified aquatics programming which may include lap swim, parent-led swim lessons and/or limited social distanced recreation swimming, all by appointment or reservation. The City plans to phase in pool programming in the beginning of July.

Day camps are now allowed with social distancing and mitigation measures in place. YPCE will phase in and start offering additional day camp programming on July 6.
