Restrooms at Hall County and Gainesville parks are closed after toilet paper thefts.
Hall County Parks Director Mike Little said the parks department is not as concerned about the loss of toilet paper as the damage to the restrooms’ toilet paper dispensers.
Community centers at county parks closed for two weeks beginning Monday, March 16 due to concerns about the spread of coronavirus. Frances Meadows Aquatic Center, a Gainesville facility, is closed through March 29.
Toilet paper has been in short supply as stores see increased demand for paper products, cleaning supplies and shelf-stable foods with people preparing to stay at home to reduce the spread of coronavirus.
Both county and Gainesville parks are still open for people who want to spend some time outdoors, although programming such as athletics has been suspended.
