We recognize continuing concerns in our community about the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and want to advise our patrons that the District is closely monitoring new developments and following the guidance of health officials to protect all our patrons, students, and employees.
The District's planning for COVID-19 is focused on specific steps necessary to maintain a safe environment for our patrons, students, employees, and to ensure we are well equipped and prepared to adjust operations in the event the situation changes. Facilities and equipment are frequently cleaned and surfaces disinfected with the approved chemicals for the virus. We continue to work with the DuPage County Health Department to reinforce preventive steps to reduce the spread of illnesses in our facilities, such as handwashing, wearing facial coverings, staying home when sick, and keeping children home when they are sick.
The purpose of these guidelines is to ensure the safety of all who use the Roselle Park District facilities and to help prevent the spread of a highly contagious virus. These standards are based on recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the IL Department of Health.
- Wear approved facial coverings while using District facilities, participating in programs or events, and interacting with staff.
If you need to request an accommodation due to a disability please contact the District's ADA Compliance Officer, Nick Kapetan, at (630) 994-4589 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Practice social distancing and keep 6 feet between yourself and anyone who is not a member of your household.
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- Use provided hand sanitizer when entering the facilities and as needed.
- Complete sign in sheet upon entering any District facility.
During an infectious disease outbreak, it is critical that while ill and/or experiencing the symptoms of the virus, you do not visit the Roselle Park District facilities. Therefore, patrons shall self-assess for symptoms of the virus prior to visiting.
As a general guideline, someone experiencing a fever or symptoms of the virus should not visit the public facility. Below is an outline of COVID-19 symptoms.
