Governor Herbert issued a directive this afternoon called Stay Safe, Stay Home. In it, he directed Utah residents to avoid attending a gathering of any number of people (other than those who live with us in our homes).

In order to help bring this mandate to fruition, effective Saturday, March 28 we will close:

* All four City golf courses (Dixie Red Hills, St. George Golf Club, Sunbrook Golf Club, Southgate Golf Club)
* All pickleball courts
* All sport parks
* The skate park
* Snake Hollow Bike Park
* and all playgrounds and gazebos until further notice.

Trails will not be closed, but we must maintain social distance of at least six feet.

Being an outdoor haven, this is difficult to do but we stand firmly behind the Governor's directive. We want to do everything we can to prevent further spread of COVID-19.
