The Village of Streamwood remains committed to the health, safety and well-being of everyone within our Village. We have changed our Emergency Notification to 'yellow' with the recent notification from the CDC about Cook County being in the Medium community level of COVID-19 transmission.
While there are no mask mandates for most indoor uses (retail, offices, grocery stores, restaurants, etc.) being implemented, the CDC does encourage their use during High Levels. The latest CDC guidelines generally follow the 5-5 program. If you test positive for Covid, isolate for 5 days. If after 5 days, you are symptom free and have had no fever for more than 24 hours, you needn't isolate. However, you should wear a mask for the next 5 days to ensure the safety of others. Additional regulations may be considered if people are immuno-compromised, or have other serious health risks. For complete details, click here to see the latest CDC regulations.
We want to ensure that you and your family remain safe. Please remember to practice social distancing where feasible, cover your mouth/nose when coughing or sneezing, consider a mask in crowded areas, and be mindful of those with immunocompromised conditions. Some places may still be subject to the mask mandates, such as nursing homes and healthcare facilities, which are under federal mask mandates. Individual businesses may choose to place additional restrictions. The Village is not requiring visitors to wear masks.
Free N95 masks are being provided to local pharmacies and health care centers. Walgreens, CVS, and other area providers anticipates receiving and distributing free masks. The Village does not have these masks; please reach out to local providers.
Village events may be modified if CDC and state guidelines change. At this time, all Village Board meetings, events, and facilities are open. Please remain vigilant! Let's keep one another safe. Get vaccinated or get the booster! If you're still having concerns and issues, we note some key resources to help!
