Current Covid Status

Tier 3 Mitigations

Beginning Monday, November 23rd, Nash Recreation Center will implement the following changes to comply with Governor Pritzker’s order to transition all Illinois regions to Tier 3 mitigations.  The mitigations directly affect use of the facility, along with recreational youth and adult sports.

  • The pool and locker rooms will be closed until further notice.  This includes all lap swim and water aerobics classes.
  • The gymnasium will be closed until further notice.  This includes all basketball and pickleball reservations.
  • The Fitness Center and TRX Room will remain open, however face coverings will now be required by patrons at all times, including while in use of equipment.
  • Indoor classes held at Nash Recreation Center will be cancelled.  All registered participants will be directly notified and a partial refund will be issued.
  • Swim lessons participants that are currently registered for November and December swim lessons will be directly notified by Catch the Wave with program changes.

All facility reservations and scheduled classes and programs will remain as scheduled through Friday, November 20th.  Current Nash members that find the Tier 3 mitigations and limited facility schedule cannot accommodate their needs may request a prorated refund of their existing pass online.

The District will continue to follow the guidance provided by the Governor, Center for Disease Control, and Illinois Department of Public Health as our top priority is the health and safety of our community, patrons, and staff.  To learn more about the District’s facility and general cleaning guidelines and procedures, please visit the Phase 4 Re-Opening Plan.

Restore Illinois Phase 4

The stay at home directive issued by Governor Pritzker was lifted on May 29, 2020.  It is critical for the Oregon Park District to proactively identify and establish protocols for the phased reopening of our parks, programs, and facilities.  Recognizing there is no existing vaccine for the disease caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-coV-2, OPD is dedicated to implementing policies and measures to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.  This will require many significant changes to our operations, especially during the initial phases, to best ensure the well-being of our employees and the public we serve.

The Oregon Park District re-opening plan is based on recommended best practices from many sources, including the Restore Illinois plan, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Illinois Department of Public Health and Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.  This plan will be updated and revised as the Covid-19 crisis evolves.  All decisions will be made based on new or revised mandates or recommendations from governing authorities.
