UPDATE ON RESTORE ILLINOIS PHASE 4 OPERATIONS:
Phase 4 allows for the safe reopening of facilities, such as ours with social distancing policies in place. Therefore, CFPD has created safety guidelines for business to resume at both Station 1 & 2 with capacity rules in place and common public health standards still remaining in effect for the safety of our employees and others. Below is a list of some of the safety guidelines we have implemented, so we may begin to move forward to the normal use of our facilities in the near future. The guidelines are as follows:
· Face mask/face covering must be worn while within the building.
· All visitors must sign in at entrance.
· Visitors must have their temperature checked and logged at entrance.
· Modified Training Room Capacity
* Station 1: Max Occupancy 22 (20 students and 2 instructors)
* Station 2: Max Occupancy 14 (12 students and 2 instructors)
