Updated Mask Guidelines

In accordance with new guidance released by Governor Pritzker, the Illinois Department of Public Health, and the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, the Winnetka Park District has updated its face mask guidelines, effective May 20, 2021. Here’s a summary.


  • Fully vaccinated individuals age 12 and older no longer need to wear a mask or social distance. Masks are encouraged.
  • People age 12 and older who are not fully vaccinated should still social distance and wear a mask.
  • People age 11 and younger are required to social distance and wear a mask.


  • Fully vaccinated individuals do not need to wear a mask or social distance. 
  • All others are encouraged to wear a mask when six feet social distancing cannot be achieved.

Currently, the Park District is not tracking patrons and participants for vaccinations. Please follow the guidelines referenced above. Regardless of your vaccination status, the Park District always encourages patrons and participants to wear a mask and social distance. Play safe!
