EVART -- The Evart Splash Pad is now open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., daily, with a maximum capacity of 50 visitors.

The Evart City Council approved the opening on the condition the plan was approved by local health officials.

"We have to follow what the local health officials state for safety requirements," City Manager Sarah Dvoracek said.

Opening the Splash Pad requires additional safety measures be put in place, including posting precaution signs, providing personal protection equipment, and routine cleaning throughout the day, she said.

"There will be restrictions on numbers, and specific water rules in place," Dvoracek said.

Some of those rules will include, keeping a six foot distance from others, wearing a face covering, washing hands frequently and covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze.
