I am happy to report that today Governor Pritzker has announced that Illinois restaurants and bars will be allowed to open for outdoor dining (only) in Phase 3... which is on target to take effect in in 9 days!
We are thankful the Governor has relaxed his position on this issue and will provide more information to our residents covering outdoor eating guidelines(face masks except when at your table, social distancing of tables and perhaps more) as they are confirmed. As our restaurants and bars get prepared to meet the State’s outdoor dining guidelines, your Village will be at work to see how we can make outdoor dining possible at their business locations.
The Village’s restaurants and bars are understandably relieved to hear this news, as are we, knowing we can again go to our favorite places in celebration of their reopening. We still have a journey ahead of us, but each return to the new normal is a step in the right direction. Thank you to all our residents for doing your part to make this possible.
Eat Local....9 days outdoor dining can begin!
