30 April / The Tartu City Government has decided to open outdoor gyms, in addition to all outdoor athletic fields and playgrounds owned by the City, on 1 May. Due to the continued risk of infection, distance and hygiene requirements will remain in effect at all athletic fields and playgrounds.

According to Mayor Urmas Klaas, Tartu was able to make this decision since the Government of the Republic abandoned its initial disproportionate requirement to disinfect inventory after each use. ‘Since the residents of Tartu are very much looking forward to being able to use outdoor gyms, we decided to open them. In accordance with the order of the Government of the Republic, outdoor gyms will be cleaned once per day’.
In addition to other playgrounds and athletic fields the Tähtvere Skatepark will also open on 1 May; however, there is a special rule limiting its use to a maximum of 10 people at one time. The City Government will be enforcing compliance with this rule.
At stadiums belonging to the City, individual training and sports by groups with a maximum of 10 members will be permitted. Disc golf and BMX trails will also be opened. Athletic facilities, including the grandstand building at Tamme Stadium, will remain closed for the time being. Dog parks will also be opened.
The 2+2 rule must be followed at athletic fields and playgrounds, and before and after using the field or playground hands must be disinfected or washed. The City Government will be installing signs with instructions on how to behave at athletic fields and playgrounds.
