City of Antigo cancels number of summer programs

ANTIGO, Wis. (WAOW) -- The City of Antigo's Park, Recreation and Cemetery Department announced a number of cancelled programs for the summer on Thursday, May 21.

According to a Facebook post from the department, they considered age of participants, and likelihood of not being able to practice social distancing during play, as well as difficulty in maintaining sanitation and disinfection of equipment.

They cancelled the following events:

  • Pitching machine baseball (navy blue and orange)
  • Coach pitch baseball
  • T-ball
  • Soccer
  • Flag football
  • Summer Open Skates
