The COVID-19 pandemic has temporarily forced businesses to restructure their services, hours, and teams. Organizations across the nation have revamped operations in order to provide their services. The West Chicago Park District has been diligently working to provide programs and services to the best of its abilities, while adhering to state and local health mandates, since the beginning of the pandemic. In light of the prolonged and significant health threat, along with an increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the city; changes must be made to remain proactive, fiscally responsible, and maintain the health, safety, and well-being of our patrons, staff, and families as our priority.
