During the normalization phase of the fight against coronavirus, IMM drew social distance rings for everyone who visited the parks to remember and protect the social distance rules.
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) is preparing the parks of Istanbul for the new era of the fight against coronavirus, whose spreading rate is slowing but still poses a risk. For the summer months when the normalization calendar is put into practice, the parks visited by thousands of Istanbuls are organized by IMM according to social distance. The IMM Park Garden and Green Areas Department draws circles of 1,8 meters in diameter, at least 2,4 meters apart, in green areas on the Anatolian and European sides. It is aimed to prevent high mobility and the number of visitors with the circles determined according to the capacity of the parks. In the lines, substances that do not damage the grass are used. As the grass grows, the lines are planned to be repainted.
