Cook County Department of Public Health Order 2021-11

In accordance with the Cook County Department of Public Health Order 2021-11, the Salt Creek Park District will require proof of vaccination to enter our facilities effective Monday, January 3, 2022. This order states all recreation centers in Cook County must require any individual 18 years of age and older to show proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with an approved vaccine in order to participate in fitness or athletic programs. In addition, facilities must require patrons ages 18 and older to show identification (including but not limited to: driver’s license, passport, government ID, work or school ID) with information that corresponds to the vaccination proof.

Additionally, any indoor facility rental where food and/or beverage is served also requires all attendees to be vaccinated. All participants must continue to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth at all times while inside Salt Creek Park District facilities and practice social distancing whenever possible. Proof of vaccination for COVID-19 and photo ID will be checked upon entering for all fitness & athletic participants. Thank you for your cooperation!

Inclusion assistance provides individuals with disabilities the opportunity to participate in their home park district program.  When registering, the parent of the individual should inform the park district (and NWSRA, if desired) of any accommodation needed in order for the individual to successfully enjoy the program.  The park district staff will then contact NWSRA for assistance with the accommodation.
