Hello Sylvan Lakers,
We wanted to keep everyone updated on the status of the beach, which is currently closed for swimming while we waited on guidance from the IL Department of Public Health.
The IL Department of Public Health just recently released swimming guidelines which state that beaches should remain closed during Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois plan. You can read those guidelines here: http://www.dph.illinois.gov/sites/default/files/Swimming%20Facility%20Guidelines%20Final%206%205%2020.pdf. Also note that playgrounds are still closed in Phase 3 as well.
While beaches cannot open in Phase 3, they may be able to open in Phase 4. Phase 4 could happen at the earliest by June 26th if the Northeast region meets the required metrics set forth by the Restore Illinois Plan.
We will continue to keep members updated as new information gets released. Thanks again for practicing social distancing around the lake.
