Creating Community through People, Parks and Programs
The state of Illinois has entered into Phase 5 for the COVID-19 mitigations. We are following the guidelines listed below.
All district activities will be managed without capacity restrictions.
Outdoor Activities: Mask will now be optional for anyone at any outdoor programs, leagues, events, and/or camps, as well as at the beaches or splash pad.
Indoor Activities: Masks must be worn indoors by staff and participants in any District program that involves children under the age of 12.
Masks are not required for fully vaccinated participants and staff while moving through the facility
*PLEASE NOTE – If you choose to move forward with in-person programming and the mitigation strategies change after the session has begun, the District will NOT be able to refund program fees IF the program is able to be offered virtually.*
Any participant exhibiting symptoms of COVID while participating in a program will be quarantined to a designated room until they can be picked up by a parent/guardian. The participant will be permitted to return to the program after all symptoms have subsided and an approved return-to-program note has been received by the district from your physician.
In the event of a confirmed case of COVID-19, participants will be notified immediately.
~ The contaminated program space will be closed for cleaning for 24 hours after notification of exposure
~ All program participants and staff will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days from the last date of exposure if they have had direct contact with the confirmed case
A participant can safely return to a program/facility after exposure or diagnosis of COVID-19 when:
~ They have been fever-free for 72 hours without medicine
⁓ AND other symptoms have improved
⁓ AND 10-14 days have passed since symptoms first appeared
~ AND they have a return to participation notice from their physician
Guidelines are subject to change – updates will be posted.
