TDRPD Management



March 10, 2020

Truckee-Donner Recreation & Park District is currently aware of the concerns and risks involved with the current COVID-19 virus. We are committed to help prevent the spread of the virus by taking the necessary steps in our facilities, programs and events. As a high use community entity, we wanted to share with you our steps and processes that we are taking to help prevent the spread of the virus. The health and safety of our community and visitors are our top priority.

As many other organizations and the Centers for Disease Control have mentioned the most basic ways to prevent the spread is to:

  • Stay home if you are sick or show symptoms of being sick. This includes our staff and the public that uses our facilities and programs.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (sing the Happy Birthday song). Be more diligent than perhaps you have before by washing after sneezing, coughing or anytime you are in a public place.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces frequently.

Reference the CDC Preventative Website For More Information

We have asked our staff and participants to follow these guidelines as best as possible.

At our Facilities and Programs here is what we are currently doing to provide the cleanest rooms and surfaces possible.

Preschool and School Aged Care:

The preschool and after school care at TDRPD are doing the following things to take extra precautions against preventing the spread of COVID-19:

*Using Ecosense Tough and Tender 12X to wipe down all surfaces hourly.

*Using Sol-U-Guard Botanical sprayed on all items in both the preschool and KK nightly.

*Having all children wash their hands upon entering the building, hourly, before eating, and upon exiting the building.

*Washing hands for at least 20 seconds after using the bathroom and before eating, coughing into an elbow, avoiding touching faces.

*Asking parents to keep kids home when experiencing cough, fever, or other respiratory symptoms, as well as asking staff to stay home when experiencing these symptoms.

We check the daily for updates on the virus. As of today, there are no known cases in Nevada County.

Parks and Maintenance

  • We have ordered foot pulling door openers for our heavily used doors to help avoid the need to use your hands to touch and pull open our doors. When these arrive, we will have them installed immediately.
  • The maintenance crew will focus on sanitizing high touch surfaces daily and install more hand sanitation stations district wide.
  • We will be adamant on keeping all the soap and sanitation dispensers full.


Recreation Center, Fitness Center & Track, Community Pool:

Our policy is to disinfect our machines, weights, treadmills, doors, front desk pay stations and all of our equipment by doing an hourly wipe down every hour throughout the day. We will also be switching out towels after each clean.  

Rentals and Special Events

All outside organizations with rentals and events at our facilities are left to their own judgement on whether or not to have their event. Refunds will be provided if there is the decision to cancel. Before and after any program/event, our maintenance crew will continue to diligently clean the facility and the equipment used in each room. 

As of now, the Spring Egg Hunt and Dive is still on for April 11. TDRPD hosted events and programs are not planning on cancelling at this time.  

Our admin and management team are monitoring the situation daily and will continue to provide updates. We are in contact and collaboration with the other community districts as well as Placer and Nevada County Health Departments.

Continue to check on our website home page or social media pages for updates on any changes in our programs/events.
