What’s New 

Tier 3 Resurgence Mitigation Overview (effective November 20)

With COVID-19 spread now exponential in every region of the state, our statewide positivity rate at record highs and hospitalizations already surpassing our Spring peak, Governor Pritzker has announced that all 11 regions will move into Tier 3 effective Friday, November 20.

The Glenview Park District is committed to continuing our services while also adhering to these new safety guidelines. The situation is fluid and can change anytime. If and when there are changes, we will provide you with updates.

See Tier 3 State Mitigations

IDPH will continue to track the positivity rates and hospital capacity metrics in regions over a 14-day monitoring period to determine if mitigations can be relaxed, if additional mitigations are required, or if current mitigation should remain in place. In order for a region to move back to Tier 2 mitigations, a region must experience less than 12 percent test positivity rate for three consecutive days AND greater than 20 percent available intensive care unit (ICU) and hospital bed availability AND declining COVID hospitalizations in 7 out of the last 10 days. See the Restore Illinois Plan

General Guidelines for Phase 4

Safety is our number one concern for program participants and staff alike. We will continue to closely follow recommendations from the Governor’s office, CDC, DCEO and the IDPH as it pertains to public parks and recreation activities and facilities.

  • Face coverings are mandatory for both participants and staff if they are unable to maintain 6 feet of physical distance during activities.
  • Increased cleaning and disinfecting of all indoor spaces. Equipment will be sanitized after each use.
  • Hand sanitizer is available for use and encouraged regularly, as is proper hand washing.

Signage with instructions and reminders for patrons to practice social distancing will be posted at all Park District facilities. Staff will assist patrons as needed. The Park District will adhere to capacity limits at all facilities and equipment will be spaced out to allow for social distancing wherever possible.

In order to protect your privacy and align with HIPAA laws, we are not taking temperatures of our participants on the recommendation of PDRMA, our insurance provider. Instead we encourage you to self-monitor for any COVID-19 like symptoms and to take your temperature at home. We will be asking basic health screening questions when you arrive at a park district facility.

Face Covering Requirements 

Upon further CDC guidance regarding face coverings, all exhalation valve/filter/vent masks, neck gaiters and face shields without masks will not be permitted at the Glenview Park District for ALL participants and staff.

Face coverings should have:

  • 2 or more layers of breathable fabric
  • Completely cover your nose and mouth and can secure under your chin
  • Fit snugly against the sides of your face and don’t have gaps
  • For more information regarding how to properly select a face covering, click here.

Parks 

Residents can visit parks to enjoy outdoor activities such as walking, hiking, running or biking. Outdoor amenities such as tennis courts, basketball courts, the dog park and playgrounds will remain open within our parks. Outdoor restrooms at Gallery Park will remain open. Outdoor restrooms at Flick Park, Roosevelt Park and Johns Park will remain open when outdoor ice skating and sledding is available. All other outdoor restrooms will be closed as part of our normal winterizing procedures.

All visitors are expected to observe and follow Illinois and CDC social distancing guidelines – keep social distance of at least 6 feet, do not participate in group activities, and wash your hands both before and after visiting for at least 20 seconds. Please remember to help keep our parks clean by carrying out everything that you are carrying into the parks when you leave. 

Protect our community
The park district is working cooperatively with the Village and Police Department, and they are ready to assist with enforcement by dispersing people who do not follow the Governor’s order. We want to do all we can to protect our community. We need you to do all you can to protect our community. If you visit one of our parks and the park is already heavily attended, please come back at a later time.

We will continue to monitor usage within our parks. If we see overcrowding or additional activity within our parks that is not in adherence with the Governor’s Executive Order, additional restrictions and measures may be put in place.


Become a COVID Safety Ambassador!

When we curb the rise in positive cases that means we’re helping to keep our community, family and friends safe. It is with this goal in mind that NorthShore University HealthSystems is asking residents to consider becoming a COVID Safety Ambassador.  You can pledge to keep yourself and the ones you love safe from COVID by signing the COVID Safety Promise.
