COVID-19 UPDATE

Date of Event:


July 15, 2020 - Update

On July 15, the Governor announced a new mitigation plan, in the event Illinois experiences spikes in key metrics that would threaten residents' health and safety. These metrics include increased rolling averages for new cases and constraints faced by hospitals to handle increased patient loads, or three (3) consecutive days with a greater than 8% positivity rate. The mitigation plan creates three (3) tiers of increased restrictions aimed at reducing positivity rates based on public gatherings. The purpose is to slowly re-introduce restrictions. For example, in a Tier 1 scenario, restaurants may have to reduce their capacity for indoor dining and suspend indoor bar service, but in Tier 2 they may have to restrict all indoor dining, while under Tier 3, all restaurant service would revert to takeout or curbside. 

As part of this mitigation effort, the state amended its regional impact map. They have increased the reporting and affected regions from 4 to 11, coinciding with regional EMS reporting areas. Streamwood is in Region 10, which includes all suburban Cook County, but excludes the City of Chicago.  At this time, our state and region remain in Phase 4. There are no proposed changes at this time. For additional information on the plan, click here.


June 24, 2020 - Update
Phase 4 will begin on June 26.
Under Phase 4 gatherings of 50 people or fewer will be permitted. Schools and child care programs will be allowed along with all outdoor recreation. Many businesses will be allowed to open, including restaurants, entertainment facilities, and health and fitness centers, following specific guidelines from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).

Locally, the Village will be issuing garage sale and block party permits. The Park District will be offering outdoor youth and recreational sports activities. The fitness center may reopen with a maximum of 50% occupancy at any given time.

Indoor recreation, including bowling alleys, movie theaters, and other activities, will be permitted with no more than 50 customers or 50% of facility capacity, whichever is less. These capacity limits are similar to banquet halls and other venues.


Face coverings and social distancing remain requriements during this phase. To review the entire plan, please click here.
