Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) Kick Off Conference
All participants should self-screen prior to arriving at this event and should remain home if feeling unwell or displaying coronavirus symptoms.
All participants are required to wear a mask inside the Doubletree Hilton regardless of vaccine status.
Unless fully vaccinated, participants who are medically able should continue to wear a mask at outdoor venus the majority of time while at Special Olympics Illinois activities.
Vaccination is not required to attend in person events.
Special Olympics Illinois will not be providing masks. Participants must bring their own.
SOILL will have hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes/spray and other cleaning/sanitizing products on-site for participants’ use.
Every effort will be made to sanitize equipment and supplies that are routinely touched by the public. Social distancing will be encouraged at sales tables. The flow of purchasers will move in one direction to avoid crossing paths.
Please check with the event organizer/s on the status of spectators attending fundraising events. The decision on allowing spectators is based on the facility being used for the fundraiser, the rules they have and the amount of people above the number of registered attendees they can safely accommodate. It is very important you relay to your constituents if spectators will be allowed at this fundraiser.
Even with the vaccine, there is no way to completely eliminate the risk of infection. Individuals with a higher susceptibility risk for COVID-19 are encouraged to review the information on the CDC and IDPH website to make an informed decision about attending in person events.
Special Olympics Illinois is committed to providing the best athlete, volunteer, coach and supporter environment possible. While we are excited to resume in-person events, the health and well-being of our constituents remains our top priority. All of our in person events follow the COVID-19 recommended IDPH and CDC guidelines.
Please review the COVID High-Risk fact sheet for more information:
