Make a change to prevent the spread of COVID-19

Community spread of COVID-19 in Kendall County is increasing rapidly.  In surrounding communities, hospitals are becoming overwhelmed, with limited beds available for new patients. It is critical that we step up and make changes to prevent further spread.

Change your daily habits – Avoid shopping at peak hours and take advantage of contactless delivery or pick‐up services with retailers.  Wear a mask when going through a restaurant drive-through or order pick-up.

Keep at least six feet between you and others – Avoid shaking hands as a social greeting.

Avoid crowded places – Gatherings are limited to no more than 10 people. Utilize web-based video services to spend time with family and friends outside your household.

Follow handwashing and hygiene practices

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick and stay home when you’re sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when in a public setting and when around people who don’t live in your household.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
