COVID-19 Guidance: Phase 5
After a long, challenging journey we have finally made it to Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan! You no longer need to make a reservation when visiting our facilities, spectators are welcome for games, and we have lots of programs and events to choose from.
While sign-in for contact tracing and health questions will no longer be required when you arrive, our team will continue to ensure a fresh, clean experience for our visitors. Front desk shields, regular disinfecting of common areas and surfaces, hand sanitizer stations and daily cleaning/fogging procedures will remain in place.
Updated Mask Guidance (8/23/21) Read entire public email here. Due to quickly rising numbers of COVID-19 infections, Cook County Department of Health announced a county-wide mask mandate. All visitors are required to wear masks while visiting Glenview Park District facilities or participating in indoor activities or programs.
New Mask Guidance for Youth Recreational Sports (8/12/21) IDPH has released new mask guidance for youth recreational sports. All indoor youth sports participants must wear a mask when attending or participating in youth sports programming, including during practices, games and in the locker room. All spectators, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask when attending indoor youth sports activities. Youth participants and spectators for outdoor sports programs can remove masks when social distancing is implemented.
The park district will not be requiring patrons or participants to be vaccinated, nor will it be tracking vaccination or other personal medical information for patrons. We will be abiding by the honor system and ask for guests’ responsible and respectful cooperation.
We continue to monitor and follow the guidelines associated with COVID 19 on the federal, state and county level, as they relate to our programs and facilities and to keep the community safe. Thank you to our residents for all of your support and cooperation throughout the changes we have navigated as a community throughout the pandemic. With neighbors supporting each other, lots of smiling eyes, and a vaccination rate of 70%, you have shown how a strong community is built through the actions of each individual.
What does Phase 5 mean for summer camps?
We are so excited about entering Phase 5! We cannot wait to have some fun in the sun with your campers and hope they are as excited as we are to get back to the swing of things this summer.
With that being said, here are the COVID precautions you can expect under current guidance:
- We will continue to plan socially distant activities both indoors and outdoors.
- Campers will be able to remove their masks when participating in outdoor activities, but will need to continue wearing masks for indoor activities unless eating.
- The District will be collecting proof of vaccination for staff and counselors. If fully vaccinated, they may remove their masks during outdoor activities. Staff will continue to wear masks during indoor activities, regardless of vaccination status.
- Health screening questions and temperature checks at drop off will continue, based on ISBE guidelines.
- The small group format that is currently in place will continue throughout the summer.
- Regular disinfecting and cleaning of common areas will continue.
