COVID-19 Information

Suburban Cook County-Region 10 is currently operating under Bridge Phase requirements as outlined in the Restore Illinois Plan, in conjunction with Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) Bridge Phase Mitigation Orders.

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) will continue to track the health metrics and announce further changes as our Region 10 makes progress toward Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan.

The Rolling Meadows Park District continues to be committed to the health and safety of participants, guests and team members while also providing opportunities for individual growth and community connections through parks and recreation.

While recent updates regarding the wearing of face coverings by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Governor Prtizker are positive steps in our battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, it also creates new challenges for Rolling Meadows Park District. Neither the Governor's new Executive Order nor updates provided by Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) currently provide guidance on determining who is or is not fully vaccinated nor do they provide record-keeping guidance about whether the Park District must keep records of individual's vaccination status and, if so, for how long, in what manner. Furthermore, a majority of our participants and guests entering our Park District facilities are under the age of 12, thus are not currently eligible to be vaccinated and must continue to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing.

As we have learned throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, it is so very important team members, participants, and guests feel comfortable and safe within Park District facilities. And as previously mentioned, a majority of those entering Park District facilities are children under the age of 12 who currently are not eligible to be vaccinated. While we are anxious and excited to fully reopen Rolling Meadows Park District, health and safety, especially of those not yet eligible to be vaccinated, will come first.

Therefore, in an effort to keep those not yet eligible to be vaccinated safe and healthy please explore the below health and safety precautions and requirements for Park District facilities, programs, activities and events.

  • Face coverings remain required upon entry to and while inside all areas of Park District facilities; including while exercising. This is for both vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals.
  • Maintain a 6-ft. social distance from others not within your household.
  • Wash and sanitize hands frequently
  • Stay home if you're not feeling well.

If you or a family member have been in a Park District facility and test positive for COVID-19, please contact us at 847-818-3200 x 1111. Thank you.
