DECATUR PARK DISTRICT ISSUES RESPONSE TO COVID-19 REGARDING EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES

 

 

The Decatur Park District is committed to protecting the health and safety of our patrons and staff. The District continues to monitor the recent COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, along with the guidelines and safety information released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Illinois Department of Public Health, the Macon County Health Department and The Park District Risk Management Association (PDRMA).

In accordance with recent CDC and State of Illinois guidelines that have been released and supporting social distancing, we will be taking the following precautions:
     All group programming, classes, events, trips and tournaments hosted by the Decatur Park District are suspended until April 15. This includes: Midstate soccer, Perform! show (postponed until further notice), Little League baseball/softball, lacrosse, dance, volleyball, tumbling, pickleball tournament, special recreation association (SRA), seniors, umpire clinic, adult basketball and volleyball leagues, Greater Decatur Chorale and preschool programs.
     The Decatur Indoor Sports Center (DISC) will remain open for individual fitness access, but all group fitness classes and activities will be suspended until April 15.
     Our golf courses will remain open for golfers.
     In an effort to protect our seniors, all programming at the Scovill Activity Center will be suspended until April 15.
     The Decatur Airport follows the recommendations of the FAA and is currently operating flights as scheduled.
     All pavilion and facility rentals will be at the discretion of the renter. If you are renting from the Decatur Park District, you can choose to maintain your rental, reschedule your rental at no charge for another open date, or cancel your event for a full refund.
     All outdoor parks and facilities will remain on track for their opening date at this time.
     Our administrative office will remain open to continue fully serving our community.

     We will be addressing all requests for refunds and credits due to our cancellation or postponement per program.

     Rest assured; we will be continually monitoring the news as information develops on a daily basis for updated procedures that may need to be taken.

     In order to help limit the spread of the virus, The Decatur Park District has implemented an accelerated cleaning regimen at all facilities.

     For your personal safety and the safety of others, we ask that you refrain from visiting park areas and facilities if you and/or your immediate family are not feeling well or have travelled to an area that has had positive findings of COVID-19.

     We urge you to keep abreast of the latest public health information via the CDC website at www.cdc.gov.
