If you're planning to head to one of the select parks that will be reopened Friday, plan on having DNR officials out making sure social distancing guidelines are being followed.
That is the message from Department of Natural Resources Conservation Police Sergeant John Williamson who told Regional Radio News on the WHOW Morning Show Thursday they are glad to have the public back out at places like Clinton Lake but make no mistake about, the guidelines laid out by Governor JB Pritzker will be enforced.
Williamson hopes the public will do its best to comply because he gets the feeling from State leadership, if the public follows the guidelines, other areas could open up sooner than later.
Williamson stresses parks will be open from sun-up to sun-down. For those that frequent Clinton Lake, that will be a bit of a change as many boaters are used to the lake is open 24/7.
