The Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) has issued updated guidance regarding Order 2021-11. In response to this new guidance from Cook County, Rolling Meadows Park District is currently required to obtain COVID-19 vaccination proof for the following individuals:

1.  All skaters over the age of 18 must show a vaccine card and photo ID prior to paying at the door or participating in on-ice activities.  Only fully vaccinated adults over the age of 18 will be allowed to skate.  Adults who are spectators in the bleachers will not need to have their vaccine status checked.

2.  Skaters ages 18 and under do not need to have their vaccine status checked.

3.  No food or drinks will be allowed in the facilities.

4.  Public Skate season pass holders will have the option to show vaccination confirmation one time and have their status saved on a pass holder list. No personal information will be stored on this list. 

The Park District continues to require a face covering be worn in all Park District facilities by all individuals 2 years and older, regardless of vaccination status.
