FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Genoveva Chavez Community Center Set To Partially Reopen July 20
Delayed Due To Governor’s Restrictions, COVID Concerns
Santa Fe, July 7, 2020—Nothing is more important to us at Parks and Recreation than your health and safety. That’s why when the governor pushed the pause button on New Mexico’s reopening we too put our reopening plans on hold, for at least a week, and do not plan on opening our doors at Genoveva Chavez Community Center (GCCC) before Monday, July 20. We will be taking our cues from the next Governor’s next update, scheduled for July 15.
The GCCC was previously scheduled to reopen on Monday, July 13. However, the Governor and top state health officials are continuing to crunch the numbers regarding the spread of the coronavirus in New Mexico before deciding whether certain businesses will be allowed to reopen, or in some cases close once again. The governor is scheduled to make an announcement just two days later, on July 15, 2020, and we are holding off on announcing any reopening plan until after that.
“While everyone is excited to reopen, we want to wait until after the Governor makes her announcement to see if there are any new or different guidelines or protocols we will need to take into account. With COVID cases continuing to increase, we want to ensure all necessary precautions to stay safe while keeping our community safe are taken,” said John Munoz, Parks and Recreation Director.
