City of Wheeling’s Tennis and Pickleball Courts Reopen
WHEEELING – Wheeling’s pickleball and tennis courts reopened to the public at noon Tuesday after they had been closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Assistant City Manager Bill Lanham said those utilizing the courts should take appropriate precautions in light of the coronavirus and matches will be limited to singles only.
“People need to be aware that the high-touch areas at the facilities, such as the gates to enter the courts, will not be regularly sanitized nor will there be hand sanitizer onsite, so visitors may want to bring their own hand sanitizer,” he said. “The city can’t emphasize enough the need for social distancing. We are relying on the people using the facilities to adhere to the policies and procedures set forth in order to remain safe and healthy while enjoying these outdoor venues.”
Lanham added that court users should continue to follow the guidelines set down by the CDC, the governor’s office and the Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department.
