In the final week of March, Old Town Pasadena shut down its public areas in an attempt to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Central Park in Pasadena–known for its free lawn bowling lessons and as a hub where numerous Metro lines connect–is closed. Caution tape is laced around the playground with swings tied up so locals cannot use them.
All Love Collections, a facial spa located on Fair Oaks Ave., has closed temporarily as it is not considered an essential business. However, the store is still selling hand sanitizers and other products made in-store and delivering locally. The sign outside the store has become a point of interest for those walking along the street.
Color Me Mine, a paint-your-own pottery studio located on the corner of Green Street and Fair Oaks Ave. in Pasadena, has been temporarily closed during the Coronavirus shutdowns. However, the store is still open for customers who came in before the shutdown to pick up their glazed pieces. To promote social distancing, the store has marked in chalk where customers should stand.
To entertain children during the Coronavirus shutdown, many parents have taken to the streets with chalk.
