The Village of Streamwood remains committed to the health, safety and well-being of everyone within our Village. We have moved our Emergency Notification to 'green' and hope that we can continue to see positive trends as the pandemic wanes.
The Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) ended mask mandates for most indoor uses (retail, offices, grocery stores, restaurants, etc.). Proof of vaccination will not be required for entry to restaurants or bars, or for fitness clubs. Schools and nursing homes will still be subject to the mask mandates, as well as healthcare facilities, which are under federal mask mandates. The Village will no longer require 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.
Face coverings must still be worn in healthcare settings and congregate care facilities. Individuals businesses may also choose to place additional restrictions.
Village events are being modified following CDC and state guidelines. Village Board meetings and all Village facilities are open following these guidelines.
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!
