REDDING, Calif.- In Redding, playgrounds and aquatic centers are back open, just in time for summer.
Action News Now spoke to the Makayla Phillips, the operations coordinator for the Redding Aquatic Center. Phillips tells Action News Now people can expect to have their temperature taken before coming in, see markers reminding people to keep their six feet distance, and will be limiting capacity.


As for employees, they’re required to wear masks. Staff will also be constantly cleaning and sanitizing in between all camp and public swim sessions.


When it comes to play structures, they will not be cleaned. The City of Redding says people who use the play structures should do so at their own risk.

They want to remind people to practice social distancing, bring hand sanitizer, and cleaning wipes to keep your family safe.


At the Redding Aquatic Center, swimmers will be accepted on a first come, first served basis until the capacity limit is reached.

Reservations will not be available and swim lessons and summer camps will not be using the facilities at the same time as the public.


The Redding Aquatic Center has also cut back their hours to allow for thorough cleaning and sanitizing.
