Per the State of Illinois and the Cook County and Skokie Departments of Public Health, the Skokie Park District vaccine requirement and mask mandate will be lifted as of Monday, February 28.
This will mean that masks will be optional in all indoor district facilities (except for certain circumstances at Tot Learning Center and Devonshire Preschool. Please check with those programs for their guidelines.)
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Cook County Department of Public Health continues to recommend masking in crowded indoor public settings, where physical distancing cannot be maintained. The CCDPH also urges those who have not been vaccinated to do so.
Although masks will not be required, many park district patrons will choose to continue to wear a mask –– especially those who are immunocompromised and children under the age of 5 who are not eligible to be vaccinated. We ask for continued understanding and kindness to those who choose to wear a mask.
