How to Wear a Cloth Mask Properly
“In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and some states are now advising that most people wear cloth face coverings in situations where social distancing cannot be maintained consistently. Here are some simple steps to make sure you do so correctly.”
Cook County Suburban Residents Traveling from COVID-19 Hot Spots to Quarantine for 2 Weeks
Anyone entering suburban Cook County from a COVID-19 hot spot — whether a traveler or returning resident — should quarantine for 14 days, according to a new emergency travel order issued Friday by the Cook County Department of Public Health.
The guidance mirrors an order issued by the City of Chicago earlier this month. The Cook County order covers travelers from Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Iowa and Oklahoma.
Please take travel plans into consideration and adhere to public health guidelines when registering and participating in any park programs.

Illinois Executive Order 2020-10 has been lifted.
The executive order specifically states that individuals may leave their residences to engage in outdoor activity such as walking, hiking, running or biking and may go to public parks and open outdoor recreation areas if you comply with the Social Distancing Requirements defined in the order – and playgrounds may now be opened.
PLEASE help us keep the community and our staff safe and in state compliance by adhering to social distancing and hygiene guidelines.
Your family’s efforts to following these guidelines are crucial to helping us enforce this order! The Burbank Park District thanks everybody for your cooperation on this matter.

The Burbank Park District Board of Commissioners and Leadership Team are taking preventative measures to provide the safest conditions for our guests and staff. We will continue to collaborate with local and regional health agencies to determine the best course of action.
Current measures to enhance the safety of our facilities, protect our staff, and inform patrons of their role include:
In the meantime, we advise staff and patrons to stay home when they are sick. Additionally, any children who are sick should refrain from use of Kid Zone and should avoid coming to open gym and kid’s recreational programming. Staff, patrons, and children should wash their hands frequently with soap and warm water and cover their coughs and sneezes using the arm shield method.
We are relying on health experts to provide us with guidance going forward, and depending upon the direction, will adapt our approach as necessary. For additional information about how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community, please visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/index.html
The safety of our patrons and staff has always been our highest priority, and we are taking these steps to keep our facilities clean and our guests healthy.
