“We will continue to implement safety measures to protect visitors. Safety is first and foremost and our goal is to protect those who choose to enjoy our facilities,” Brian Spruiell, Director of Facility Operations at CPS Energy, said in a news release. “CPS Energy was one of the early adopters of social distancing and we will continue to maintain those practices at our facilities.”
