August 20, 2021 Update
To keep patrons and staff members as safe as possible throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Northbrook Park District has followed the guidelines and mandates of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH), and local jurisdictions such as the Village of Northbrook.
CCDPH has issued a new Mask Mandate for Cook County that will go into effect on Monday, August 23. The mandate includes the following information:
- Any individual aged two and older and able to medically tolerate a mask shall be required to wear a mask when indoors in a public place, regardless of vaccination status.
- For the purposes of this Order, indoor public spaces include any common or shared space in: (1) a residential multi-unit building or (2) any non-residential building, including but not limited to retail stores, restaurants, bars/taverns, health and fitness clubs, museums, hotels, personal services, performance venues, movie theaters, commercial buildings, event venues, healthcare settings, congregate facilities, on public transportation and in transportation hubs.
- Mask refers to a complete and tight knit fabric or cloth, or medical mask that is appropriately sized for the individual’s face to snuggly cover the nasal openings and mouth without the necessity of being held in place by the individual’s hands.
Therefore, beginning August 23, masks will be required following these guidelines in all Northbrook Park District indoor facilities.
For the new Acorn Grill + Terrace restaurant at Heritage Oaks Golf Club, the mandate adds, “Masks may be removed at restaurants, bars and other eating/drinking establishments by patrons when they are actively eating/drinking while stationary.”
