Originally Published July 22, 2020

The safety of Chicago Park District patrons and staff is paramount. Prior to reopening our park fieldhouses, safety measures were put into place to protect our workforce and the communities we serve.  This includes implementing robust safety training programs and policies which included cleaning and disinfection procedures, requiring staff and patrons wear face coverings and practice social distance, as well as modifying programming and minimizing the number of people in our facilities. As we all know, these measures do not make us immune to COVID-19.  

The District was notified of four positive COVID cases in the parks. In each instance, the District has taken immediate action and followed proper procedures to ensure the safety of everyone involved. The Chicago Department of Public Health was notified promptly and guided the District’s response. Each park was cleaned and disinfected in accordance with health and safety guidelines. 
 
July 6th, the Chicago Park District was notified that a child or staff member of the Easter Seals Preschool, which operates at Fosco Park, has tested positive for COVID-19. The early childhood program utilizes a dedicated space within the park with a separate entrance/exit, programming space and restrooms from Chicago Park District staff, program participants and the general public. Easter Seals staff and families were notified immediately. The preschool was closed for 14 days however Fosco Park remained open. 
 
Thursday, July 16th CPD was made aware that two staff members at Columbus Park tested positive for COVID. Upon notification, day camp families were notified immediately and the park is closed for 14 days.  
 
Friday, July 17, CPD was informed that a staff member at Haas Park tested positive for COVID. The employee did not have direct contact with campers. Families were notified immediately. Remaining park staff have been tested and are awaiting results. Per CDPH guidance, the staff cannot return to work until negative results are received. The park will remain closed until staff receives their results. 
 
Blackhawk was closed June 25th and 26th while staff waited for COVID test results. The park was closed due to lack of staff. Testing results came back negative for all park staff. During this time, the park fieldhouse was open for washrooms and shelter only. No programs were being offered. Due to the staff’s negative test results, no further action was taken.
