Community Collaboration: Update on Coronavirus

Today, the entire state of Illinois moves to Tier 3, with mitigation requirements that limit gatherings and encourage people to stay home to the greatest extent possible. We support this move, as the data shows that COVID-19 cases in our community continue to increase exponentially. 
 
Of particular concern are the upcoming holidays. You can see that COVID-19 cases throughout the township spiked just after Halloween. We strongly encourage all of you who live and work in our community to follow the advice of state and local health officials to avoid travel and limit gatherings to those in your household.
All members of the Glenview Northbrook Coronavirus Response task force are committed to doing whatever is necessary to protect the health and safety of all of our citizens. Please visit our website to find the link to the websites of each of our organizations to see how we are changing our operations. You’ll also find information and resources for support.
