Westerville, we need your help.

We’re all in this together, and the situation changes daily. To help keep all of us safe and reduce risks of exposure, Westerville Parks & Recreation and the Westerville Division of Police (WPD) are closing courts, the dog park, skate park and enforcing existing playground closures. 

Please help us by complying with these closures. Let’s keep WPD officers on emergency responses and routine patrols rather than writing citations for trespassing on park equipment while closed.

This is a challenge for everyone. Help us by walking, biking or hiking instead. Walk around your neighborhood or volunteer to walk a neighbor’s dog. Now is the time to think of others and support our community while we wait for this pandemic to pass.

These precautions are in place to minimize public contact for residents/visitors and staff as recommended by public health experts.

  • The Westerville Community Center is closed until further notice. All Parks & Recreation programming has been suspended. Scroll below for more information.
  • All other City facilities are closed to the public. Some limited public access is available by appointment.
  • The City’s water, sanitary sewer and electric utility systems are operating as expected and the public should not be concerned with disruption of service. Supply chains for these utility functions have been hardened with most being supplied from domestic sources.
  • IMPORTANT: A reminder about sanitary sewer maintenance and wipes
  • Rumpke trash and recycling collection services will continue as scheduled. Here’s how you can help.
The Westerville Divisions of Police and Fire (WPD, WFD) have implemented some policy adjustments. These precautions are in place to help protect the first responders who protect the community.
  • WPD is evaluating and limiting in-person non-emergency responses. Reports should be taken by phone unless it is an emergency. Emergency responses continue as normal.
  • The WPD lobby remains open for public record requests.
  • WFD is suspending programming and inspections while focusing on emergency medical services.
Westerville is working with its public health partners to help minimize the impact of COVID-19 in our community.
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfection continues at all City facilities.
  • Help us by regularly practicing the following:
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. 
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care. (Health care providers ask that you call before visiting.)
