Illinois Moves to Phase 5

Wednesday, June 9, 2021 - 12:00pm

Governor Pritzker announced that Illinois will move to Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois plan on Friday, June 11. Starting Saturday, June 12, the Park District anticipates the following:

  • All unvaccinated individuals should continue wearing masks and practicing social distancing.
  • All individuals under the age of 12 that are registered for Park District programming will be required to continue wearing masks during programming, along with the coaches/leaders of those programs to set the example for the participating children.
  • For the Family Recreation Center, including aquatics, advanced reservations for facility usage will no longer be required. Membership, daily fee, and general facility information is available via the Oak Brook Park District website.
  • Fitness centers may now operate at full capacity. Reservations for group exercise classes, the walking track, and the Fitness Center will no longer be required. Twenty “virtual” participants may continue to participate in group exercise classes. See here for an updated schedule of classes.
  • At the Family Recreation Center, locker rooms, including showers and lockers, remain available for use. 
  • Showers are now available for use, in addition to the locker rooms, at the Tennis Center.
  • Pool parties and group rentals will resume at the Family Aquatic Center after July 4th weekend.

These changes are based upon the information currently available; should the Illinois Department of Public Health provide additional guidelines or guidance, the Park District will apply them where necessary. The Illinois Department of Public Health will continue to track the positivity rate in our region and if the metrics don’t improve more stringent mitigations may be applied to further reduce the spread of the virus, which could include further reducing capacity on organized group recreation, fitness or other activities as well as the temporary suspension of certain activities.

Follow the latest regional metrics here. 

Please continue to wash your hands, monitor yourself for symptoms of COVID-19, and stay home if you are feeling sick. Thank you for your patience as we work through these changes.
