Village of Bannockburn

Village Hall COVID Update

The Village of Bannockburn along with Region 9 (Lake and Mchenry Counties) moved into resurgence mitigation on October 31, 2020.

Governor Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) are announcing COVID-19 resurgence mitigations will be implemented in Region 9, Lake and McHenry counties, beginning at 12:01 am on Saturday, October 31, 2020. Region 9 has seen a 7-day rolling average test positivity rate of 8 percent or above for three consecutive days, which exceed the thresholds set for establishing mitigation measures under the state’s Restore Illinois Resurgence Plan.

As a result, public gatherings in Lake and McHenry counties will be reduced to 25 people, and indoor dining and indoor bar service will be temporarily closed – although outdoor service in tents and takeout, delivery and drive through service will remain available.

Phase 4 Reopening Update:
On Tuesday, August 25, Governor JB Pritzker announced a new, statewide face-covering requirement for patrons of restaurants and bars, including carryout or drive-thru customers. The new guidelines require patrons to wear face coverings when interacting with all restaurant or bar employees. These measures are effective Wednesday, August 26, 2020, and are aimed at protecting workers and slowing the spread of COVID-19. The new guidelines were developed in consultation with the Illinois Restaurant Association and other hospitality industry partners.

All restaurant and bar patrons must wear face coverings over their noses and mouths when interacting with restaurant employees, including:

  • placing orders;
  • picking-up carryout orders, and;
  • when food and beverages are brought to the table or removed.

The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity has released an updated toolkit to assist business owners in implementing these new guidelines. Signage announcing this requirement is available for download.

Governor Pritzker and Dr. Ngozi Ezike, Director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, strongly urged all Illinoisans to be diligent in wearing face coverings, reiterating that data has shown that the use of face coverings helps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
