Wilmette Park District
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Potential Exposure Update

As we monitor the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) daily and follow the recommendations of county and state health organizations, the safety of our patrons, participants, and staff is our top priority. It is with this in mind that the Wilmette Park District feels obligated to inform our patrons of any potential exposure to the virus that may have occurred at or around our programming and facilities.

On Wednesday, March 25, it was reported to us that a patron recently tested positive for COVID 19. This patron and members of their household attended the Mom & Tot gymnastics class on March 11 at 10:30 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.

There is the risk that the patron may have been contagious at that time, and for this reason we are informing our community of this event and encourage each of you to monitor your own health.

The Gymnastics facility is cleaned nightly by a third-party cleaning company. We will continuously evaluate the situation and inform patrons of any other reported cases and potential exposures.

We recognize the seriousness of the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in our community. We urge all residents to follow the Center for Disease Control’s tips by staying home if sick; avoiding close contact with people who are sick; covering coughs and sneezes; avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth; and washing hands with soap and water.
