Current Mask Policy
(7/14 Update)

Face masks are optional for fully vaccinated individuals (with exceptions, below).

Please continue to wear a mask if you are not fully vaccinated.

Special Mask Policy

For campers, counselors and all participants in our Early Childhood Center programs (C.A.R.E., Kindergarten Enrichment and all Preschool Programs):
The Governor's Executive Order states that individuals in schools, day care settings, and educational institutions should continue to follow separate guidance issued by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), Illinois Department of Family Services (DCFS), and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).
  1. Outdoors: masks are optional - You will be asked if you want your child masked when outdoors when you fill out your Camper/Student Information Form;
  2. On buses to the pool, beach or facilities - masks are required for everyone; and
  3. Indoors - masks are required for everyone.

Our Commitment
We remain committed to the health and safety of our patrons, particularly our younger ones who are not currently eligible for a vaccine. Please be aware that our instructors (fully vaccinated or not) will wear masks when with participants in any program that involves children under 16 years old.

As always, thank you for your ongoing patience, support and flexibility as we collectively navigate this pandemic together.

Definition of "Fully Vaccinated"
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.

We Trust You
The Park District does not track the vaccination status of our patrons and participants. By participating without a face mask in a Wilmette Park District program, lesson or activity, or visiting a Park District facility, you are verifying truthfully that you have been fully vaccinated. We encourage unvaccinated individuals to wear a mask and social distance.
