FRAMINGHAM – The City of Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer and Framingham Health Director Sam Wong released a video today, March 20, to remind residents to continue to practice social distancing.

“It is hugely important. It is only when we all practice social distancing properly, we have a way to successfully beat down this virus,” said Wong.

“If you have symptoms, please stay home,” said Wong.

Wong urged families to stop using the playgrounds, during this coronavirus pandemic. The City of Framingham has closed all its playgrounds.

Wong suggested individuals to go outdoors and use the parks to take a walk, but not to use the playgrounds.

“We have had signs translated into 3 different languages and they are currently being printed. They will be installed at all of our parks and playgrounds ASAP. We will also be posting this information on our Facebook & Instagram Pages,’ said the City of Framingham Parks & Recreation Department to SOURCE.

Updated at 6 p.m.: City of Framingham announced all basketball and tennis courts, as well as the Skatepark are closed, in addition to the playgrounds.

Bowditch Field track is also now closed.

“PLEASE use social distancing regulations while in our passive parks & ball fields,” added Parks & Recreation.
