Local COVID-19 cases

The Village of Glenview learned this morning that a number of parishioners who attended a March 15 service at The Life Church of Glenview, 3030 Central Road, have tested positive for the coronavirus. The Village is working with the Illinois Department of Public Health and Cook County Department of Public Health to learn more.

Regarding positive case reporting:

·The Village does not have access to information about positive cases of COVID-19 within the community. For privacy reasons, that information is held by the Cook County Department of Public Health.

·Contact tracing, the process of determining who an individual may have come in contact with prior to testing positive, is a function performed by the Cook County Department of Public Health.

This situation highlights the importance of not participating in or hosting large gatherings.

·Contact your house of worship regarding online services it may be offering during this time.

·Walk the dog and get outdoors, but don't congregate or play group sports in parks. Playgrounds are off limits and golf courses -- after much state discussion -- will now be closed to play.

·This is not the time to party. Don't throw one and don't attend one.

Village Update on COVID-19 - (2)

Construction work to begin

To minimize the spread of COVID-19, Illinois Governor JB Pritzer issued a “stay at home” executive order effective through April 7 for all non-essential workers and businesses. The order has designated construction projects as an essential business operation.

Construction is vital to maintaining the Village’s infrastructure and providing water, sewer and storm services to the neighborhoods. Therefore, this year's construction season will continue as planned. The public should expect to see construction projects ongoing in the next few weeks throughout different areas in town:

·Work on Hunter Road between Heatherfield and Fernwood and Church Street between Grove and Pine started this week

·Work on Parkview and Washington between Harrison and Colfax and Montgomery south of Colfax should begin next week

·Mobilization on Briarhill and Covert Road east of Shermer is anticipated next week followed by the start of underground work the week of April 6.

You can view project updates on the Village website.

Please note that while these construction projects occur, the contractors are following protocols to prioritize everyone’s health and safety. This work includes social distancing from residents and other workers, providing hand washing stations on the job site, and cleaning the construction equipment at the end of each day.


Gouging, jobs and Smart911

In response to a surge in scams and price gouging since the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak, residents are urged to file any complaints with the Office of the Attorney General to report unfair practices connected to the pandemic. Under a March 16 Illinois executive order, the Illinois Attorney General is directing businesses to maintain fair pricing, particularly on items public health agencies are recommending people use to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The state of Illinois is also taking steps to deal with the unprecedented number of unemployment claims being filed. Read more here.

This is also a good time to make sure first responders have all the information they need when called to a residence or business in Glenview. The Village is using Smart911 to allow anyone with a phone -- mobile, landline or Voice Over IP (VOIP) -- to create a Safety Profile online and sign up to receive emergency notifications. Read more here.

Preventative measures

Person-to-person spread of COVID-19 appears to be mainly between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. Physical distancing is recommended to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Additionally, take these steps to stay healthy:

·Wash your hands frequently and diligently

·Avoid touching your face (eyes, nose, mouth) with unwashed hands

·Stay at home if you feel ill and contact a doctor

·Cover coughs and sneezes

·Clean frequently-touched surfaces and objects regularly

Food composting opportunity

Beginning April 1, residents with yard waste carts can compost food scraps along with their regular yard waste. If you are already enrolled in Groot's landscape waste collection service and rent a 95-gallon cart from Groot, you can begin adding food scraps to the cart. Get more information here.

We're still counting on you

Our community needs you to fill out the 2020 Census now more than ever. For each person that goes uncounted, Illinois could lose approximately $2,000 per person per year affecting funding for police and fire protection, healthcare, school programs, roads and many other resources. Census data is also used to determine Illinois’ political representation in the coming years.

By now, households in Glenview have mostly received at least one piece of official mail from the U.S. Census Bureau. Please take a moment to complete the census questionnaire today, so everyone who lives at your address on April 1 (National Census Day) is counted. It’s just 9 questions, and you can complete it online, by phone, or by mail, in about 10 minutes. Please know the census is safe, secure and confidential. Your information and privacy are protected. And, if you fail to respond, a census taker will follow up in-person to assist you.
