Self-assessment expectations

All employees, patrons, and visitors are expected to stay home when experiencing any symptoms of illness. If the answer is “yes” to any of the assessment questions, we ask that you don’t enter any facility or participate in any activities. 

Self-assessment questions:

  • Are you experiencing or have you experienced any of the following symptoms in the last 48 hours (fever, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, muscle pain, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, chills)?
  •  Are you caring for someone or is someone in your household ill with COVID-19 or COVID-19-related symptoms?
  • Have you been exposed to anyone who is ill with COVID-19-related symptoms?

Face covering code of conduct

It is recommended that individuals age 6 and older wear face masks when social distancing is not feasible while visiting Lenexa Parks & Recreation facilities including the Rec Center, Community Center, Senior Center, Thompson Barn, and Legler Barn Museum. No masks are allowed to be worn while in the water at a public pool.
