Scenic Drive Completely Closes to Reduce Risk of Spreading of COVID-19
On Saturday, April 4, 2020, Scenic Drive closed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Scenic Drive is now closed to both vehicle and pedestrian traffic so that the public does not continue to congregate and minimize the spread of COVID 19 and will remain closed until further notice.
The new and amended Stay Home, Work Safe directed by city and public health officials order prohibits public gatherings of any size at recreational areas to include parks.
Public health officials continue to urge that everyone follow these simple steps:
- Stay home if you are sick or feeling under the weather
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
- Throw used tissues in the trash and immediately wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.
- If at work, clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as workstations, keyboards, telephones, handrails, and doorknobs
- Avoid using other employees’ phones, desks, offices, or other work tools and equipment, when possible
- Make sure to clean and disinfect workstations before and after
The El Paso Department of Public Health (DPH) continues to urge residents to follow prevention measures such as washing our hands and by self-isolating as much as possible.
