The original opening date of June 18, 2020, for the Carpenter Center has been delayed. Director of Parks and Recreation, Kenny Gregory, was  informed this morning that two employees of the Carpenter Center have tested positive for COVID-19. Although the remaining three employees tested negative, per the guidance of the Barren River Health Department, they must also be quarantined for 2 weeks, due to their close contact with the infected employees. For the health and safety of our customers and employees, I plan to postpone the opening date to June 30th, however, that will be subject to change if necessary.  Looking ahead, we will continue to follow the COVID-19 guidelines for the Carpenter Center, with additional cleaning and sanitizing procedures and other precautions to hopefully prevent further spread of the virus.
