March 18, 2020 – The Woodridge Park District truly appreciates your patience as the District works through this unprecedented time. As much as we strive to get out information to you in an expedited time frame, we first need to continually get thoroughly educated on the ever-changing information from public health officials, assess impacts on District operations both internally and externally, and understand various consequences on decision to be made. It is imperative that we continue to vet the information and decisions that affects us all before we convey that to you. We understand one’s anxiety and need for information associated with this issue on all fronts, and we will continue to keep you informed on a factual basis as soon as possible.
Our first priority is the safety of our workforce and Woodridge Park District patrons that use District facilities; hence the decision per the recommendations of federal, state, county and local public health officials to close all District facilities through May 30th to minimize the potential of community spread. The following are answers to frequently asked questions that we can answer at this point in time and the initial decisions made:
