To the Residents of the 14th District,
My office has created a COVID-19 webpage with up-to-date information for you and your family. We will continue to provide weekly summaries of new information as well. You can read last week's update here.
As of today, Illinois has 117,455 reported cases and 5,270 reported deaths. Daily updates on case count and general resources have been compiled by Gov. Pritzker here. You can also see community by community data for Cook County here.
Also starting today, Suburban Cook County moves to Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois plan. While businesses and workplaces can cautiously reopen, it does not mean we are out of the woods. I ask you to join me to continue to exercise caution, wear a face covering, and practice social distancing.
1) Restore Illinois Phase 3 Begins: Today, most of the state is moving into Phase 3 in a five-phase plan to reopen Illinois. The City of Chicago will move into Phase 3 next week. You can learn more about Phase 3 and what it means for businesses and summer camps here.
2) Cook County Community Recovery Fund: Next week, Cook County is launching a new initiative to support small businesses and independent contractors in the county. For more information, including if your business is eligible, click here.
3) Property Tax Appeals Dates Released: Although the Cook County Assessor's Office remains closed, the staff is working remotely. New appeal windows have been announced for all townships in District 14. You can find out more about the appeals process and when your property's appeal window is here.
4) Want to Become A Contact Tracer?: To help control the spread of COVID-19, the Illinois Department of Public Health is hiring staff to track positive cases of COVID-19. If this sounds like a job for you, read about it here.
5) Take Out Dining: An ongoing list of local restaurants offering take out is here.
6) Looking to Help?: Thank you to all of our neighbors who are stepping up to help! An ongoing list of opportunities for donations and volunteers is here.
