CHICAGO — The Park District has delayed its in-person winter programs due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The programs were scheduled to begin Monday, but their start will be postponed indefinitely to comply with the state’s current COVID-19 safety rules. The in-person programs will come back when city and state officials “determine it is safe to resume,” according to a Park District news release.

People who had registered for affected programs will received prorated credit that can be used for future programs, according to the Park District.

The agency’s virtual programs will continue.

Park field houses will remain open during regular hours so people can use the restrooms and can take shelter in them if needed.
