The COVID-19 pandemic is a global health and societal emergency that requires effective immediate action by governments, individuals and businesses. There is no higher priority to the Cameron Park Community Services District than the health and safety of our community and employees. We have been following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the California Department of Public Health, and the El Dorado County Department of Public Health, to protect public health and fight the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
We will continue to rely on the recommendations of our local health officials and their expertise to make future decisions. Rest assured that we will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed as this situation evolves.
Facility, Event, and Program Impacts
Update 10.20.20 - Our parks and most amenities within our parks remain open. Playgrounds at our parks have been impacted by the updated state guidelines. Staff is currently assessing how the District can meet those guidelines within our limited resources and with our aged playgrounds. At this time, playgrounds are currently closed - if a family chooses to use a playground, they are doing so at their own risk. We will update our signage and operations when we have determined we can meet the newly updated guidelines. We apologize that guidelines continue to change and staff are doing their best to stay apprised of these changes.
The following Cameron Park CSD facilities, events and programs are closed until further
notice. Because the situation continues to evolve rapidly, we may reevaluate and decide to modify these measures based on guidance from public health officials.
The District has guidelines to resume reservations for sports teams to use District gymnasium, pool and sports fields for practices and drills only, as organized sports are not permitted at this time, per State and County mandates. If you would like to make a field or gym reservation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
