The City of Elkhart has made the decision to close Pierre Moran Pool and the McNaughton Spray Park effective Monday, July 6.
The state of the COVID-19 outbreak in Elkhart County that warranted action from the state has led to this decision.
Elkhart Mayor Rod Roberson issued the following statement:
“This was a tough decision. But given where we are with this virus, it was the right one for Elkhart. Our staff prepared for weeks to ensure they took all the necessary measures and they did an excellent job. Unfortunately, the environment of the pool and the spray park is not conducive to wearing masks, distancing, and mitigation. Our numbers are climbing and we must do all we can to slow the spread of this virus.”
