Guidance on Social Distancing and Face Coverings
Posted on Friday May 01, 2020
Governor Pritzker recently issued his latest executive order aimed at protecting the public health, and you may be wondering how this order impacts you.

The directive lays out new public health requirements for individuals leaving home and for businesses.  Face coverings are now required in public places or when working.  Practically interpreted, this means that covering of the nose and mouth with a face covering is mandatory whenever you are in a public place and unable to maintain a six-foot social distance with others, and that face coverings are now a “fact of life” for all indoor public spaces (essential stores, manufacturers, government buildings, etc.).

As a provider of essential government functions, the Village of Mokena is adhering to these new requirements.  If you need to conduct business with us in person, we kindly ask that you have a face covering in place prior to entering the Village Hall or Police Station.  In a like manner, you can expect face coverings to be worn by Village employees during their personal interactions with you and other customers when you are within six feet of each other.     

Irrespective of these required changes in the conduct of daily business, what will not change is our approach to serving you.  We will continue working hand-in-hand to conduct essential business with you, and together we will get through this extraordinary time.

As a final thought, keep in mind that social distancing remains a centerpiece of the newest executive order, and we urge you to do everything you can to maintain six feet of separation from others in public places.  It’s the best-known way we have to mitigate spread of the virus.

Should you have questions regarding the new executive order, contact the Village Hall at (708) 479-3900.
