City of Naples strategizing how to continue with summer activities amid coronavirus

The Fourth of July is just two months out and Naples is trying to figure out what signature summer activities will look like in the age of the coronavirus.

Typically you would see people packing the streets for the 4th of July celebration.

While it might be far away—the city is now strategizing how they can pull this off, while also making everyone’s health & safety a top priority.

If the event is canceled before the 19th it would save the city about $95,000.

This means they need to come to a decision relatively soon—and that’s not the only thing that’s up in the air.

The city is also looking into summer camps. Its River Park summer camp for example already has 65 kids registered—their total is 80.

The city did stress, however—canceling these camps would not have a significant impact on the city budget.

One option for the camps is to reduce the number of kids and enforce social distancing.

If the council comes to a decision on either of these items trust WINK News to have that update for you.
