In response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the Town of Pulaski is closing the Dora Trail to the public, along with all Town parks and playgrounds. This closure will go into effect today, April 7th and will remain in place until further notice.
As Pulaski County now has multiple confirmed cases of COVID-19, we are taking the appropriate measures to protect our families and citizens. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution for our community and those more susceptible to being diagnosed with COVID-19.
Please continue to do your part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by:
- Washing your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer
- Keeping household surfaces clean (including cell phones)
- Coughing or sneezing into a tissue (and discard it) or your interior elbow
