To align with recommendations from public health officials, the Urbana Park District is revising its mask guidelines for people inside park district buildings.

Effective at the start of business Thursday, all people must wear a mask inside park district facilities, no matter their vaccination status.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Urbana Park District has consistently followed CDC, IDPH, and CUPHD guidelines for COVID-19 and will continue to do so,” said Corky Emberson, Superintendent of Recreation. “We are taking this step to make sure everyone, especially children, are safe,” Emberson explained.

All other park district Covid-19 guidance remains unchanged.

Emberson added, “We continue to welcome all to our park district buildings, programs and events and we want people to be as safe as possible.”
