In light of the recent rise in COVID-19 cases, the upcoming Mayor’s Fitness Challenge has been postponed and may be rescheduled to this spring. Residents are encouraged to take steps to stay COVID-free this holiday season - wash hands frequently, social distance when out and about, and always wear a face covering when indoors and social distancing is not possible. All of the city’s parks are open and offer a great way to stay active this holiday season. Staying active while protecting yourself from COVID-19 is important as we enjoy the holidays and a great way to kick off a Happy New Year.
