COVID Related Health Guidance

Mask Requirements

We will be using the CDC County Tracker to determine our mask requirements.

  • If Cook County Community Level is Low – masks are optional both indoors and outdoors.
  • If Community Level is Medium – masks are encouraged indoors.
  • If Community Level is High – masks will be required indoors but optional outdoors.


A COVID vaccine is available for children 6 months and older and boosters for everyone 5 years and older, if eligible.

COVID Exposure

Persons identified as close contacts (persons not up to date with COVID-19 vaccination who are within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more in a 24-hour period) should quarantine for 5 days consistent with CDC guidance and mask for 5 additional days, or 10 days if unable to mask. For those up to date with COVID-19 vaccination, masks should be worn for 10 days after exposure.
