The pier begins Phase 1 reopening today.
As of today, Chicago’s Navy Pier will reopen its facilities to the public with updated safety guidelines.
In the past few weeks, the Chicagoans have seen their city open little by little. On June 3, restaurants, salons, barbershops, tattoo parlors, and other businesses began reopening, while earlier this week, June 8, libraries and most parks (with the exception of Lakefront Trail) reopened to the public.
As of today, Chicago’s Navy Pier will follow in line by reopening most of its facilities to the public with updated safety guidelines.
“As the People’s Pier, Navy Pier has and always will prioritize the health, safety and well-being of its staff, partners and guests. We will continue to do everything in our power to make each individual feel safe and comfortable while visiting the Pier, especially now as we adjust to our new norm,” its website says.
Their updated measures include stringent sanitization, as well as safety practices which maintain that all guests over the age of 2 wear a mask — with accommodations also being made on a case-by-case basis, and that all visitors who are not of the same family maintain six feet of social distancing. The pier has also set up a number of hand sanitizing stations along the grounds which it encourages visitors to use regularly.
As mentioned, most of its facilities will reopen to the public, including:
- North and South Dock
- People’s Energy Welcome Pavilion
- Polk Bros Park
- Navy Pier parking garages
