COMMUNITY NOTIFICATION:
As many know, two cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in Illinois, with both patients receiving treatment in isolation at a hospital in Hoffman Estates. 

While the risk of contracting coronavirus is low, influenza is very prevalent in Illinois this winter season. We want to take this opportunity to remind our residents to take precautions to prevent contracting or spreading of any virus borne illnesses, as recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC):

▪️Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. 
▪️Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. 🚫
▪️Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 🤢
▪️Stay home when you are sick. 🏡
▪️Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. 🤧
▪️Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. 💦
