Glendale Readies Reopening Plans


Resident and Employee Safety Remain a Priority as City Reopens Services

The city of Glendale is working to reopen many facilities closed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The city will continue to follow recommended health guidelines as it begins to welcome residents back to recreational facilities, libraries and public meetings. Access to many facilities and services has been restricted since mid-March to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Safety First
Those using public amenities will still need to abide by the social distancing measures that are in place, as well as making sure groups are not larger than 10 people. Our city park rangers and code enforcement officers will be monitoring these locations regularly and will be responsible for breaking up large groups and making sure people keep proper distance between themselves. Our employees will make sure that anyone in violation is informed about what measures need to be in place for them to be able to continue to use any of our public amenities. Visitors will also notice more frequent cleanings at all facilities. Employees will find thermometer testing stations and increased availability of hand sanitizer, as many of them return to the office after telecommuting during the pandemic.

Please see the tabs below for specific openings and planned openings. (Last Updated 5/22/20)
