The Recreation Center is a polling location and will be open on Tuesday, March 17 for voting
(Dublin) – In an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Dublin Community Recreation Center (DCRC) will close until further notice after regular business hours ending Friday, March 13, 9:30 p.m.
On Thursday, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine banned mass gatherings of 100 or more and ordered all kindergarten through 12th grade schools to close from March 16 through April 3. Because the DCRC regularly surpasses 100 visitors at any given time, especially during school closures, the City of Dublin felt it necessary to close the DCRC to help prevent the spread of the virus.
Facility rentals and program registrations affected by the closure will be fully refunded. Annual memberships will be extended for the duration of the closure.
Registration for future recreation programs, including summer camps, will still be available online at dublinohiousa.gov/recreation. Online registration for spring/summer programs begins Tuesday, March 17 for Dublin residents and school district residents. Online registration is open to the public beginning Tuesday, March 24. Online summer camp registration begins Monday, March 30 for Teen Camps and Tuesday, March 31 for Wyandot and Junior Kidzone camps.
Front desk staff will be available to answer phone calls Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. On camp registration days, staff will be available by phone earlier. Patrons are encouraged to do business online or over the phone as the facility will be closed to the public.
During the closure, DCRC employees will continue working to thoroughly clean the facility. The chemical used in the DCRC’s cleaning spray (Super HDQL10) is on the list of recommended cleaners to combat COVID-19.
The City is continuing to work with local and state health officials to monitor this ever changing situation. Visit dublinohiousa.gov and follow the City on social media for the latest updates.
