COVID-19- Information Regarding Restaurants, Bars and School Closures

As you know, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has been declared a national emergency and we all need to do our part for everyone’s health and safety.  Following is important information that may affect several businesses, as the coronavirus outbreak situation evolves:

RESTAURANTS/BARS: Per IL Gov. Pritzker, all bars and restaurants are to be closed to the public for on-site dining from 9:00 pm Monday, March 16, and continuing through March 30, to minimize the spread of COVID-19.  Food delivery, drive-thru, and curbside pickup options are allowed - Village is gathering information about which restaurants/bars are open and offering these services, and will share the information online. 

VIDEO GAMING: In addition to casinos in the state closing, the Illinois Gaming Board has announced an order to suspend all video gaming operations effective at 9 p.m. Monday, March 16 through March 30, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.  The order will close "all licensed video gaming establishments of any kind in Illinois."

SCHOOLS:  All K-12 schools to close at least until March 30th.  Per Gov. Pritzker, families whose children rely on school-provided meals will be taken care of. The State Board of Education has received the necessary waivers to continue to distribute two meals a day to children who qualify for free and reduced lunch through a combination of delivery and parent pickup meal options. Contact your child’s school for information.

DAYCARES:  As of now, Illinois day care centers are not required to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the state will pay day care operators who get money from the Child Care Assistance program if they close or suffer from low attendance. Daycare centers should follow strict health and safety guidelines.

Starting March 18, the Governor’s Orders also prohibits a gathering of 50 people or more including community, civic, leisure, faith-based events, sporting events, etc. and applies to gyms, fitness centers, bowling alleys, private clubs and theaters.
