The City of Rockville is recommending several online resources to help rental property managers and owners combat the spread of COVID-19.
Mayor Bridget Donnell Newton delivered her second video statement, Monday, on behalf of the Mayor and Council, to update the Rockville community about actions the city is taking to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
“We all endeavor to keep each and every one of you healthy and safe in the days to come,” she said. “We will get through this if we follow the rules, make smart decisions and, above all, be kind and supportive of each other.”
While City of Rockville parks will remain open, as a safety precaution, the use of playground equipment in city parks is now prohibited.
Signs have been posted at playgrounds throughout City of Rockville parks.
The parks are open, but lights at City of Rockville outdoor courts and sports fields will remain off during evening and nighttime hours, beginning Saturday, March 21.
Gov. Larry Hogan has issued an executive order prohibiting gatherings of more than 10 people. Following state and federal directives intended to slow the spread of the new coronavirus, COVID-19, Rockville events, classes, programs, rentals and activities are canceled through April 30.
Community concerns about the new coronavirus have led to the cancellation of the March 20 International Night and postponement of the Rockville Creative Summit, scheduled for March 22.
