Park District to completely shut down

A day after saying it would cancel all programs, but keep the golf dome and fitness center open, the Buffalo Grove Park District has decided to shut all facilities.

In a post on its Facebook page, the Park District said:

With today’s change in the CDC’s recommendations regarding mass gatherings - to cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States - the Buffalo Grove Park District has decided to now close all facilities effective Tuesday, March 17. The Fitness Center and Golf Dome will remain open through the end of Monday’s regularly scheduled hours, but will not reopen to the public beginning Tuesday, March 17.
We are planning on being shut down at least through Sunday, March 29; however, that could be extended longer. As those decisions are made, we will publicize those updates through our normal communication channels.

For those who are registered in programs, or have a membership at the Fitness Center, you do not need to do anything. You will not have to pay for any missed or cancelled programs, or days in which the Fitness Center is not available. Refunds or account credits will unilaterally be issued by the Park District; however, because this a manual process that is being conducted on a huge scale, please allow at least 30 days for these to be processed to all necessary accounts.

Please note: The Alcott Center will be open on Tuesday, March 17 as an election polling place. People coming to vote will be the only ones permitted in the building.
