March 30 Update - Closure Updates
Based upon Governor Pritzker’s announcement today to extend his stay-at-home order through the end of April, we will be extending the closure of all District facilities through April 30. While unfortunate, this is a necessary step that we must take as a District in order to minimize exposure to participants and staff and limit the spread of the virus while reducing strain on the healthcare system.
All programs, events and rentals previously scheduled in April will be canceled. However, District parks remain open only for walking, hiking, running and biking as long as park users comply with social distancing requirements. As a reminder, playgrounds are closed.
We will continue to monitor information from local, state and national authorities to determine next steps if we need to extend our closure beyond April 30.
