MEDINA — Mayor Michael Sidari has issued an emergency order, closing the village playgrounds, including the skate park, to the public to assist in lowering the spreading of the coronavirus, which threatens the public health, the mayor said.

The emergency order also closes the village buildings to the public, except for employees and by appointment.

Sidari said the village parks and buildings will be monitored by the Medina Police Department, Fire Department, Code Enforcement and the DPW superintendent.

The emergency declaration is in effect for 30 days, but Sidari said he would review it in five days.

The Village of Albion has also closed its public parks.
