What are we doing to help keep you safe?
Masks and Face Coverings
All staff, participants and visitors MUST wear face masks/coverings while in our facilities and in every class. Guidelines will continue to be updated in accordance with IDPH & DCEO Guidelines.
Social Distancing & Group Sizes
A minimum of 6-ft of social distancing is required at our indoor and outdoor facilities. Our programs have been adjusted by reducing class sizes, altering activities and staggering start times. Signage at parks and facilities and messaging on our website encourages social distancing at group size and capacity limits.
Hand Washing & Sanitizing
Staff and visitors are recommended to wash hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the restroom, before eating, and after blowing their nose, coughing or sneezing. Hands free sanitizer stations are available throughout our facilities.
Cleaning & Common Areas
In addition to regular maintenance, the Park District has enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures for frequently touched objects and surfaces throughout the day. Cleaning and disinfecting before and after each class is conducted in compliance with CDC protocols.
How You Can Help Keep Yourself & Others Safe
If you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms, have a fever or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please stay home and protect other participants, visitors and staff. Avoid contact with others that are sick or experiencing COVID-19 like symptoms. Use proper cough and sneeze etiquette. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
We are watching and evaluating IDPH, DCEO Restore Illinois Guidance, CDC and our Park & Rec Risk Management Association for changes to COVID-19 restrictions. As guidelines are relaxed or updated we will continue to update the program offerings and capacities along with the limitations we are adhering to in order to keep our patrons and staff healthy.
