The City of Elkhart has closed a pool and spray park due to the coronavirus outbreak.

(You can read the Elkhart Mayor's announcement below.) 

The state of the COVID-19 outbreak in Elkhart County that warranted action from the state has led to this decision.

“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.” – Mayor Roberson
