**All patrons are highly recommended to wear masks indoors**

On July 29, 2021, Cook County entered into the substantial spread category of COVID-19 and its variants.  Based on recommendations from the CDC and IDPH, we highly recommend that all patrons, regardless of vaccination status, wear a mask in all public indoor settings until further notice. Please remember that some facilities serve high-risk groups including seniors and school-age children who are not vaccinated.  Beginning August 2, all children 12 years and under and their instructors are required to wear face masks at all times while indoors.  Additionally, all individuals, regardless of vaccine status, in our school-related programs, must wear masks at all times. Thank you for your cooperation.
