Message From President Schmitt Regarding Stay at Home Order

The Governor has issued a Stay at Home order beginning Saturday, March 21 at 5:00 p.m. and ending on Tuesday, April 7.  During this time residents are being asked to stay in their homes to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Residents will still be able to go to the grocery store, hardware store, pharmacy, bank, get gas for their vehicles and take walks outside but should not be congregating in groups. Parents please keep your children at home.  All essential workers will be permitted to work under the governor’s order.

The Village of Algonquin fully supports the Governor's actions and we call upon all our residents to support each other and keep people safe by voluntarily complying with the order.

The Algonquin Police Department will be assisting in the implementation of this order. We ask that you do your part to not put our officers in a position to enforce. Let's all work together to help break the cycle of spread. Please keep in mind that every action we take as individuals during this time affects the entire community.

The health, safety and welfare of our community and staff is of the utmost importance to the Village. Taking preventative steps to slow the spread of COVID-19 is a top priority. As we have done since the beginning of this pandemic, your Village has prioritized our residents and employee safety - that doesn't change. The Village continues to adjust in an effort to be sure the services we all depend on, including public safety and safe water supply all remain accessible to our residents.

Village facilities remain closed to the public.  All essential services will continue to be provided while maintaining social distancing practices. We are committed to ensuring that we serve our community during this time. 

Make good choices for you, your family and your community and follow the guidelines of the Federal, State and local government. You can stay informed by checking the Village website and Village social media sites.
