The Waterside Estates HOA and Fort Bend County MUD 118, 4th of July firework display will take place again this year. The fireworks will be shot from the end of the peninsula over Waterside Estates Lake at approximately 9 PM. The District is asking residents attending District park areas around the lake to please be respectful to District property and adjacent property owners and to continue to adhere to all guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and your local public health officials to maximize the safety and health of all Fort Bend MUD #118 residents. The District is monitoring state and local guidance and ordinances related to COVID-19 and the following guidelines will be updated as needed. Visitors to District parks should adhere to the following guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
- Follow the CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to heading to parks – wash hands, carry hand sanitizer, do not use parks or trails and facilities if you have symptoms, cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, etc.
- Individuals should maintain 6 feet of separation from others outside the individual’s group and from homeowner fences. A group is defined as no more than 10 persons including the members of the household and those persons who traveled together to the event.
- All District playground equipment, picnic tables and other commonly touched surfaces are not disinfected; use is at your own risk.
- Warn other park users of your presence and as you pass to allow proper distance, and step off trails and sidewalks to allow others to pass, keeping minimum recommended distances at all times. Signal your presence with your voice, bell or horn.
- Bring water or drinks — public drinking fountains may be disabled and should not be used, even if operable.
- Consistent with the actions taken by many individuals across the state, consider wearing cloth face coverings (over the nose and mouth) at the outdoor event when within 6 feet of another person who is not a member of the individual’s group.
While District Parks remain open, we ask that all residents visiting these public spaces to exercise good hygiene and best practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce ways the virus is transmitted.
