Pleasant Hill Recreation & Park District is taking a careful and thoughtful approach to opening up our facilities and adjusting programs as the novel coronavirus continues to linger and impact our way of life. Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our program participants and our staff. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate and implement protocol requirements stipulated in the ever-changing public health orders.

Please take a few minutes to review the following District-specific information related to vaccination requirements, facility openings, face coverings, and other current COVID-19 protocols at this time:

Effective September 22, 2021, all participants 12 years and older must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination per Contra Costa Health Services health order in the following indoor programs

    •    Café Costa at Pleasant Hill Senior Center
    •    All indoor exercise classes
    •    All indoor dance classes
    •    All indoor sports ( i.e. basketball, volleyball, badminton)
    •    Rentals that serve food or drink

Participants can show proof of vaccination by showing a photo ID and one of the following items:

  • Your CDC vaccination record card or a copy or photo of your card
  • Your digital vaccine record issued by the State of California
  • Documentation from your healthcare provider stating you’re fully vaccinated

People who are not vaccinated must show a negative COVID-19 test result received in the past three days. The results must be from a nucleic acid (PCR) or antigen test that detects a COVID-19 infection. These tests are available through your healthcare provider, county-run sites, and state-run sites. A letter from your healthcare provider stating the result of your COVID-19 test and the date the test was performed can also be used as proof. Results from at-home COVID-19 tests are not acceptable documentation and cannot be used for this purpose. To find the nearest vaccination site, visit:
