Salem extends park facility closures to include basketball courts and skate park 

Salem City Manager Rex Barbee has announced the closure of facilities in Bryan Memorial Park has been extended to include the basketball courts and the skate park.

Barbee says the action is being taken to help halt the spread of the COVID-19 virus and promote social distancing.

The city earlier closed all playground facilities in the city parks until further notice.

Barbee says they hope that the facilities can be re-opened in the near future, but would rather err on the side of caution and prefer that no one contract the virus through close contact at Bryan Memorial Park.
