In an effort to protect our community from the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and in following guidance regarding event cancellations and social distancing from the Illinois Department of Public Health to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, closure of programs and facilities will remain closed until further notice.
PLAYGROUNDS, COURTS, ATHLETIC FIELDS ARE CLOSED
In accordance with Executive Order 2020-10 issued by Governor Pritzker, the Golf Maine Park Districts Dee Park playground is CLOSED. In addition to the playground, tennis courts, basketball courts, fitness equipment, athletic field, sand volleyball courts, along with all other amenities are also CLOSED. We are not able to police these closures or physically barricade them from use. We must count on the community to ensure that social distancing efforts are as successful as possible. Park District walking paths remain open. Recommendations to keep safe while social distancing in public parks or on paths:
• Follow CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to heading to trails — wash hands, carry hand sanitizer, do not use trails if you have symptoms, cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, etc.
• Observe at all times CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of six feet from other people. Practice it and know what it looks like. Keep it as you walk, bike or hike.
• Warn other trail users of your presence and as you pass to allow proper distance and step off trails to allow others to pass, keeping minimum recommended distances at all times. Signal your presence with your voice, bell or horn.
• Note that trail and park users may find public restrooms closed — be prepared before you leave and time outings so that you are not dependent on public restrooms.
• Bring water or drinks — public drinking fountains may be disabled and should not be used, even if operable.
• Bring a suitable trash bag. Leave no trash, take everything out to protect park workers.
The Park District will be monitoring the COVID-19 developments closely and will update you when we plan to resume operations through our website, social media, and e-mail. Please take care of yourself and stay healthy.
