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.
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.

All of our in person events follow the COVID-19 recommended IDPH and CDC guidelines.
