Policies & Procedures

Please note our updated policies regarding masks (as of 5/24), below:

  • Fully vaccinated members of the CFC may remove their masks while on the fitness floor.
  • We ask that all members (regardless of vaccination status) wear their masks while entering and exiting the building and also in common areas (locker rooms, at the front desk, hallways).

OUTDOOR Facilities and Programs

  • Fully Vaccinated individuals are not required to wear a mask or social distance
  • Unvaccinated Individuals are required to wear a mask when social distancing is not possible

INDOOR Facilities and Programs

  • Fully Vaccinated Individuals are not required to wear a mask or social distance during classes, lessons and activities (unless participating with individuals under age 12) once you have arrived at the defined meeting space allotted for each individual program
  • Unvaccinated Individuals are required to wear a mask and social distance in classes, lessons and activities
  • All Individuals are required to wear a mask in common areas including entries/exits, lobbies, locker rooms, common bathrooms, and hallways

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), fully-vaccinated individuals are defined as being at least two weeks past their second dose of either Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or two weeks past the required single dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Please be aware, our instructors (fully-vaccinated or not) will wear masks when with participants in any programs that involve children under 16 years old. While children ages 12-15 years old are now eligible to receive the vaccination, we acknowledge they may not be fully-vaccinated for at least another month.

Currently, the Park District is not tracking patrons and participants for vaccinations. By participating in a Park District program, lesson or activity or visiting a Park District facility without a face mask, you are verifying truthfully that you have been fully vaccinated. Please follow the guidelines referenced above. Regardless of your vaccination status, the Park District always encourages patrons and participants to wear a mask and social distance.

We take your health, and the health of our entire community, very seriously. Please check our website COVID-19 Information frequently for updates and adjustments to our policies.
