Yesterday the CDC announced that "fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance." After wearing masks for a year, we know this is exciting news for those who are fully vaccinated.
In response to the CDC announcement, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker stated that he will revise executive orders to align with new CDC guidelines on mask wearing by vaccinated individuals in indoor and outdoor spaces. Until we receive these revised executive orders from the State of Illinois and the corresponding guidelines from our regulatory agencies, masks are still required to be worn at all times in our facilities. As soon as we receive guidelines to adjust operations, which we hope will be very soon, we will make adjustments as quickly as possible and communicate to our patrons.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work towards a fully re-opened Park District!
