Update 9/27/21 – Indoor Mask Mandate

Face masks are required at all City of Elgin indoor facilities including The Edward Schock Centre of Elgin. All fitness members will be required to wear a face mask even while engaged in exercise. The safety of our patrons is our top priority. With the recent surge in cases, Governor Pritzker has mandated that beginning Monday, August 30, all individuals 2 and over must wear face coverings inside public buildings, regardless of vaccination status. We will continue to monitor all state and county guidelines and will provide additional updates as they become available.
