Witter Field reopens

From a PUSD press release issued June 9:

Piedmont Unified School District has reopened Witter Field for community use.

Individuals can access Witter Field from the Wildwood Avenue steps, Piedmont Middle School’s “PE Hill,” or the El Cerrito pedestrian gate. The Windsor Avenue gate, Wildwood Elementary School playground, baseball and softball fields, batting cages, and Witter Field House restrooms will remain closed until the District develops plans and schedules to sanitize facilities for safe use.

Under the recent orders, individuals must wear face coverings when outdoors, including when engaging in physical activities such as walking and running, when within 30 feet of people outside of their household.

According to the County’s press release:

  • Everyone in all settings must wear a face covering where the public is present or likely to be, and at any time when others are nearby. .
  • Children aged 12 and younger are not required to wear a face covering, and any child two years old or younger should not wear a face covering.
  • A person engaged in walking, hiking, bicycling, running, and other physical activities is not required to wear a face covering during the entire duration of their activity, but that person must carry a face covering that is easy to access so they can wear it once they are within 30 feet of other people.

One thought on “Witter Field reopens

  1. Hello! I am slightly confused on this article. Towards the beginning of the article, it states “Under the recent orders, individuals must wear face coverings when outdoors, including when engaging in physical activities such as walking and running”. But later on it states “A person engaged in walking, hiking, bicycling, running, and other physical activities is not required to wear a face covering during the entire duration of their activity”. These statements contradict each other. Are people required to wear face masks at Witter? Thank you!
