People who have already registered for in-person sessions will receive prorated credit that can be applied to future programs, the district said.

Park District field houses remain open for restroom use and shelter, and people are still welcome to enjoy park trails and outdoor spaces, including the district's outdoor ice rinks, though playgrounds remain closed.

Park visitors are expected to adhere to health and safety guidelines such as social distancing. Masks are also mandatory. 

Registration is still open for virtual programs, including online fitness classes, arts and crafts, bingo and more. The winter session runs through March 15.

In-person programs will resume when state and local public health officials deem it safe, the Park District said in a statement.
