Surging COVID Virus Impacting Community Use of Public Facilities, With Policy Changes Put Into Place

The surging COVID-19 virus is leading Montgomery County’s Community Use of Public Facilities (CUPF), the interagency coordinating board, to change some policies regarding reservations and use of facilities. No new reservations are currently being accepted.

All community user groups who desire to cancel permitted dates of use at a public facility permitted by CUPF can do so without any fee(s) being kept or added. CUPF will allow groups to cancel without any penalties. Users are asked to submit a Reservation Amendment Form that can be found on the ‘Resources’ page of the CUPF website at

If a group fails to show up for its scheduled reservation or does not submit a formal Reservation Amendment Form, a refund will not be issued and charges will remain.

Games, tournaments, competitions or similar activities identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as close-contact sports (such as basketball and wrestling), will not be allowed in public facilities permitted by CUPF until further notice.

Practices are acceptable for participants who opt to participate. Groups with permits for games, tournaments and competitions can continue to use the permitted space for practices or may cancel permitted times without penalty.

Masks continue to be required for all participants and persons in attendance during use of all indoor public facilities.

CUPF will no longer approve or accept reservation requests for public facilities until further notice.
