Following the announcement of the Restore Illinois Plan, and making the health and safety of our residents and staff our number one priority, the Village of Antioch is taking preventative steps to help limit the spread of the coronavirus disease. The primary mission of the Village is to promote the common welfare of the community. To that end we have decided to delay the start of summer programs and the opening of the Antioch Aquatic Center to July. Please be assured that any current registrants will receive full refunds for June camp dates.
Beginning in June, provided the Stay at Home Order has been lifted, staff will begin to explore the viability of running safe summer programs and aquatic facility operations, and address the challenges of extensively training and preparing staff to deliver services in a safe manner. Moreover, should the Antioch Aquatic Center open, it will do so without offering a swim lesson program, rentals, or aquatic special events this season. This decision also includes the cancellation or postponement of all scheduled special events and concerts up to and including the 4th of July parade, Freedom Run, and Fireworks display. The Village of Antioch will reassess the remainder of the summer season in early June.
Further, the Antioch Senior Center will remain closed to the public indefinitely, but remains accessible via phone for those seeking information and resources. We are grateful for your patience, understanding and continued support as we work to provide safe and realistic seasonal programming services to the residents of Antioch. In the coming days please look for a link on our Village Facebook page to the Park and Recreation Departments Virtual Rec Center. It is our sincere hope that this site will provide residents with fun and safe activities over the coming weeks.
