Port Huron, MI — The Municipal Office Center (MOC) will reopen to the public on June 8, 2020. Residents are still encouraged to conduct business via mail, online, and drive-thru services. Visitors are asked to wear masks and social distance while in the building and refrain from visiting if they have had a fever or systems of COVID-19.
Over the next 14 days, Port Huron Parks and Recreation Department will begin opening splash pads, playgrounds, basketball courts, restrooms and other recreational facilities. However, city pools will remain closed this summer. The aquatics program requires over 100 seasonal workers that were not hired for the season, so they are unable to open the pool in safe manner on such short notice.
James Freed, Port Huron City Manager said in a press release, “This is disappointing as we brought these operational pool concerns to state officials more than a month ago.” He also asks residents to use common sense and follow CDC guidelines on social distancing and hand washing when using any city facilities or assets.
