OPD Actions During Covid-19
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.
