BILLINGS - The City of Billings announced more closures Friday.

A press release from the city states "effective immediately" all city playgrounds, tennis, volley, and basketball courts have been closed until further notice due to the possibility of transmission of COVID-19.

City parks, spaces, and trails are open for public use.

A recent study conducted by the National Institute of Health, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, found that the COVID-19 virus may live on hard surfaces for up to three days.
