COVID-19 Health Protocol

Updated January 18, 2022

Complete a Daily Wellness Check Prior to Participation

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms – ranging from mild to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Participants, parents, members, and guests should review the following steps each day prior to visiting our facilities:

Do I feel sick?

Do I have a fever at or above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit?

Do I have any COVID-19 symptoms?

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

 

If you answer yes to any of the questions above, you can resume participation when all of the following are met:

  • You have had no fever for at least 24 hours without taking medication to reduce the fever during that time.
  • There is an improvement in your symptoms.
  • You get a COVID test with negative results.

The Carol Stream Park District may suspend participation immediately if you have COVID-19 related symptoms due to the potential risk of the virus being spread to other participants and staff.

 

If You Test Positive for COVID-19

  • Notify the Carol Stream Park District immediately.
  • Stay home and isolate for at least five full days.
    • Day 0 is your first day of symptoms or test date.
  • End isolation on day six if you are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication) and your symptoms are improving OR if you had no symptoms.
    • If your symptoms are moderate to severe, isolate for at least 10 days.
  • Continue to wear a mask around others for five additional days.

 

Close Contact Exposures

Close contact exposures occur if you spent more than 15 cumulative minutes within 6 feet of someone who tested positive for COVID-19. The close contact period is considered within two days before the COVID-19 positive person’s symptoms began or two days before their test date, if asymptomatic.

Mandatory Masking for All Participants & Visitors

The state of Illinois is under a mandatory mask mandate effective August 30, 2021. This mandate requires all individuals over the age of 2, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask in indoor public settings for the indefinite future.

All staff and participants in our programs will be required to wear masks while in park district buildings and programs. In addition, participants attending programs being held in our local schools are required to wear masks while indoors at these schools.

The Carol Stream Park District will be monitoring the District for any COVID cases and exposures. If additional changes need to be made, our guidelines will be updated and shared accordingly.
