Before you go to the pool, beach or lake this summer, read this

It's nearly summer, and it's getting balmier by the day. You could splay out on the beach or cannonball into a community pool -- but you also don't want to bring home coronavirus.

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) – On Friday, Kansas City Parks and Recreation said that the city’s pools will not be opening for the 2020 season.

KC Parks said that “due to ongoing health concerns,” the 14 pools and 14 spray grounds will remain closed.

They said the decision was made after “much deliberation and consultation” with the city’s health department as everyone works to stop the spread of COVID-19.
