After a year because of COVID-19 Chicago to reopen lakefront parks soon

Nothing says "COVID" hotspot to me like the open space of Chicago's sprawling lakefront parks. 

From CBS Chicago:

Nearly a year after the city’s lakefront, playgrounds, and indoor swimming pools were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chicago Park District plans to begin reopening them soon.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot's office said the Chicago Park District will announce the reopening plans on Tuesday as the city continues to see improvements in coronavirus metrics.
The mayor's office said the Park District will begin reopening public access points to parks east of Lake Shore Drive, and will lift restrictions on lakefront parking.
In the coming weeks, the Park District also will unlock gates and prepare all 500 playgrounds and nature spaces in the city to reopen.
