Governor Pritzker announced that he will sign a 30-day extension of the state’s disaster proclamation to limit the spread of COVID-19 on April 1. The disaster proclamation provides the Governor the authority to sign additional executive orders, extending the Stay at Home order from March 20, and suspending on-site learning in K-12 schools through the month of April.
On Friday, March 20, Governor Pritzker issued Executive Order 2020-10 requiring all Illinoisans to stay in their homes to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. The order prohibits gatherings of any size and closes all nonessential establishments including most retail, recreation and entertainment businesses. Restaurants are still open via delivery and carry-out and the order does not prohibit essential activities like going to the grocery store, receiving medical care, or taking your pet for a walk. The stay at home order began Saturday, March 21 at 5 p.m.
Village Administrative offices are closed to the public. Essential village services will continue as normal. Residents are asked to please use the convenient online or phone payment systems to transact village business. Information regarding specific services and options is available here.
