In an effort to prevent the spreading of COVID-19, the mayor and city council of Edna, TX have closed all parks. This means no more leisurely strolls through the parks as you take in the magic and beauty of nature. Now, if you want to get your walking in you are going to have to do it elsewhere and also remember to keep a minimum of 6ft away from other people.

The concern for park closure is the fact that the mayor and city council cannot come up with a feasible plan to maintain constant cleanliness in the parks to ensure public safety from COVID-19 exposure and spreading. The most at-risk-persons during the coronavirus pandemic are children, elderly, and those who have prior conditions leaving them vulnerable to infection. In an attempt to protect not just these individuals, but the public as a whole, Edna mayor Lance Smiga and the city council closed the parks of the city of Edna.
