I sure hope not. But one has to wonder.

Gov. Tony Evers on Friday offered guidance for businesses to safely reopen whenever that is. A series of publications — developed by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. and the state departments of Health Services; Tourism; and Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection — detail best practices and safety tips for businesses.

Did you catch that? These are guidelines for businesses. What about public parks, like Kayla’s Playground here in Franklin? I would suspect city officials are monitoring advice from the state. Might the city implement similar measures emanating from Madison?

One of the WEDC’s publications focuses on Entertainment and Amusement.  It reads, in part:

Rides or amusements that cannot be sanitized between uses (for example, play equipment in common areas) should be closed.

Bathrooms, locker rooms and shower rooms should be cleaned and sanitized frequently.

Sanitizing wipes should be discarded after each use or when visibly soiled. Use one wipe per item/area.

Guest touch locations such as kiosks, interactive displays and video/arcade games should have sanitizing wipes provided nearby.

Attractions utilizing shared equipment (e.g., controls/handles, harnesses, helmets, shoes, balls, tables, seats) should be sanitized between uses.

A lot can happen in the weeks ahead. But when it comes to many aspects of life it appears much is about to change.
