Beginning January 3, 2022, Cook County is mandating all fitness and recreation facility users age 5 and up, be vaccinated in order to enter. The duration of this new requirement is unknown at this time, but we appreciate your patience.

Due to an amendment to the Cook County mandate on proof of vaccination, all Group and Private Swim Lesson participants as well as KidRec participants are EXEMPT from the mandate and may continue to use FitRec for those specific activities. 

Members are strongly encouraged to utilize the SmartTMHealth Card via the Illinois Vax Verify System. This will allow members to create their own “pass” even without a copy of their vaccination card. It’s likely that this pass will also be allowed at other venues requiring vaccination within Cook County. Please click the link above and register today!

Children and members without smartphones will be required to provide proof of vaccination reviewed by FitRec staff. This will require you to show a copy of your vaccine card (or a picture of your card) for FitRec to review. Once approved, this will be noted on the member’s account and will pop up as a message each time the member checks in.

All Moraine Valley Community College students, faculty, and staff are required to be vaccinated in order to utilize FitRec at this time.  Moraine Valley Community College students and staff will continue using Cleared4 as they have been, but are also encouraged to register with the SmartTMHealth Card as well.

For information on freezing your membership, please click HERE

Freeze forms will be accepted until January 2, 2022, to account for this new mandate.  All members will be allowed to freeze their accounts based on this mandate.  The typical maximum freeze allowed each calendar year (which starts again on January 1) is 6 months.

Remember, members can unfreeze their membership early at any time without an additional cost.

Lastly, we understand there are questions and concerns.  Please check this link for additional FAQ’s directly from Cook County Public Health or email us at hfrc@morainevalley.edu and we will get back to you as soon as we are able.

Thank you for your cooperation and support as we implement this new mandate into our operations!
