Face Mask Mandate Reminder
As a result of the continued decrease in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, and the increase in available ICU beds, the Illinois indoor mask requirement ended Monday, February 28. Deerfield is following the State guidance and no longer requires masks in most indoor settings, including at Village Hall.
Masks will still be required where federally mandated: including on public transit, health care facilities, congregate settings, and long term care facilities. Additionally, private businesses may choose to implement their own masking requirements.
Residents should also keep a mask with them, as they may encounter businesses or circumstances where a mask is required.
Residents are encouraged to stay up-to-date on vaccines to protect themselves, the elderly, the young, and the immunocompromised. More than 8 million people in Illinois are fully vaccinated with an average of approximately 16,000 COVID-19 vaccines administered each day.
Vaccines continue to be readily available at pharmacies across the state, many local health departments, doctor offices, federally qualified health centers, and other locations. To find a COVID-19 vaccination location near you, go to www.vaccines.gov.
With more restrictions lifted, please remember to shop local whenever possible. Deerfield business owners have worked hard the past two years during COVID-19 restrictions while still providing top-notch goods and services.
