Some Wilton residents have questioned which recreational areas are open and why certain ones were closed. First Selectman Lynne Vanderslice says with the exception of the north lot at the High School, all school parking lots are open for walking, running and biking. Social distancing guidelines still apply.
Fields in Wilton are closed.
The north lot remains closed because it is adjacent to Lilly Field, the location of the greatest number of social distancing noncompliance issues. After the schools were closed, many teammates met at the fields to practice and parents met at the facilities for playdates, which Vanderslice says undermined social distancing.
She cautioned that parking lots remaining open should not be viewed as an opportunity to join together other families.
Wilton Police patrols have increased and officers are issuing trespassing tickets, but Vanderslice says they are still removing residents from the fields.
