LAMAR, Mo.— 6/16/2020 — In light of Missouri Governor Parson’s further opening the State and leaving decision making during the Coronavirus pandemic to local authorities, City of Lamar officials have decided to take a measured approach to increase the capacities of several city facilities.
The Lamar Aquatic Park will increase capacity to 100 people per session per day. Thirty (30) spots in each session will be reserved specifically for season passholders. Social distancing on the pool deck and locker room limits will still be in effect. Pool parties can now be booked for up to 100 people. An announcement on swimming lessons will be coming soon on the Lamar Aquatic Park Facebook page. Lessons for most children under age 7 will require a parent to be in the water.
The meeting rooms in Thiebaud Auditorium will increase its total capacity to 75, with no more than 50 in a room if the room is split. Seating in the auditorium will continue to be in every other row.
Group meetings at the shelters in the Lamar City Park can now increase to 100 people. The basketball and tennis courts are also open at the park.
