Village of Addison officials met today with all of our taxing bodies, and we continue to monitor the emerging Coronvirus COVID-19 situation.
The governor has declared a State of Emergency in Illinois, in order to qualify for federal funds for testing and treatment equipment. This also allows for the institution policies to slow the spread of the virus and protect those who are at higher risk, such as the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions. However, it is important to remember that the risk to the average person is still very low.
Everyone should practice good hygiene as they would during cold and flu season, such as frequent hand washing, covering your mouth when you cough, and avoiding touching your face.
The DuPage County Health Department has more information here.
As the situation changes, we will keep you informed. The safety of our residents remains our top priority.
