NYC playgrounds were closed last week in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and now the city has announced that all dog runs and dog parks will be closed starting Tuesday, 4/7. Via Gothamist: “We understand how important dog runs are to our furry, four-legged friends, but because of ongoing overcrowding, dog runs and dog parks will be closed starting tomorrow," said Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver in an official statement. "Our parks remain open otherwise, and they are great places to get fresh air and exercise for New York City pups, but it is very important to keep them on their leashes according to park rules and to social distance.”

Sorry, dogs!
