COVID-19 Updates

(Last updated 6/10/21)

During Phase 5 of Restore Illinois, visitors who are not fully vaccinated must:

  • Wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth when inside forest preserve buildings.
  • Practice social distancing inside and outside when in the preserves.
  • Wear a mask outside anytime social distancing isn’t possible.


What's Closed

  • Willowbrook Wildlife Center visitor center.
  • Flush toilets at Danada Equestrian Center and Willowbrook Wildlife Center.

When Using Trails and Open Spaces

  • Stay home if you're sick or have been near someone who's sick.
  • Make sure other visitors know you're near if they can't see you. (A simple "passing from behind" works.) Stay at least 6 feet away as you pass.
  • Don't touch things others might also touch, such as signs, benches or shelters.
  • Keep dogs on a leash in preserves and on trails. Clean up dog droppings.
  • Clean up your trash.
