March 25 update: COVID-19 Bridge to Phase 5 and Vaccination Information 

time to vaccinate (JPG)The State of Illinois has issued a plan that details the path and metrics required to move to Phase 5, at which time all COVID-19 restrictions will be removed. Below is information on the Bridge to Phase 5, as well as information on vaccinations.

Bridge to Phase 5

On March 18, Governor J.B. Pritzker announced a plan and guidelines to bridge from Phase 4 (current phase) to Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan. According to the announcement, once 70% of residents 65 and older have been vaccinated and barring any reversals in our COVID-10 hospitalizations and deaths for a 28-day monitoring period, the Bridge to Phase 5 will begin with increased capacity limits in both indoor and outdoor settings. Once 50% of residents 16 and older have been vaccinated, and stable or declining COVID-19 metrics are recorded during a 28-day monitoring period, Phase 5 will be implemented and capacity limits will be removed altogether.

While regulations are rolled back gradually, residents should continue to follow public health guidelines including social distancing and mask wearing.   See full Bridge to Phase 5 details on the IDPH website.

Keep Moving in the Right Direction! 

In order to move to Phase 5, Region 8’s progress in the fight against COVID-19 must continue. In order to continue to keep moving in the right direction, it is up to each one of us to take personal action to slow the spread of illness.

Safety Precautions Continue for Vaccinated Individuals 

For now, if you’ve been fully vaccinated, you should still take steps to protect yourself and others in many situations.  Precautions include wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet apart from others, and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces.

To help protect those that have not yet been vaccinated, the CDC recommends that you continue to take these precautions in the following situations:

  • When you are in public
  • Gathering with unvaccinated people from more than one other household
  • Visiting with an unvaccinated person who is at increased risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19 or who lives with a person at increased risk
  • You should still avoid medium or large-sized gatherings

Additional Precautions 

  • You should still delay domestic and international travel. If you do travel, you’ll still need to follow CDC requirements and recommendations.
  • You should still watch out for symptoms of COVID-19, especially if you’ve been around someone who is sick. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should get tested and stay home and away from others.
  • You will still need to follow guidance at your workplace.

COVID-19 Update February 3: Region 8 Returns to Phase 4 - Indoor Dining resumes

covid19

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) has announced that due to decreased COVID-19 positivity rates, Region 8, including Lombard, will be leaving the tiered resurgence mitigations, and moving to Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan.

Indoor Dining Permitted in Phase 4

Phase 4 permits indoor service at restaurants using social distance, and limiting groups up to 10 at a table. Standing areas in bars or restaurants should be limited to 25% capacity.

Personal care, health and fitness, and retail store businesses can operate at 50% capacity, and groups of 50 or 50% capacity may convene. Please visit the Illinois Department of Public Health website for related information\

Support Lombard Businesses: Shop & Dine Local

shop local lombardPhase 4 allows restaurants to reopen! Residents are strongly encouraged to choose to dine and shop locally whenever possible. Supporting local businesses during this time is vital to our community.

While we celebrate this next step in restoring our local economy, we do so with a heightened responsibility to the health and safety of our family, friends, neighbors, and essential workers. COVID-19 is an active part of our day-to-day lives and prevention is key. Customers should expect to comply with social distance and should continue to wear masks in situations when a minimum of 6’ of social distance cannot be maintained.

Preventing the Spread of Illness: Help Keep Lombard Open

Region 8’s return from Tiered Mitigation to Phase 4 is due to decreased restrictions. It remains up to each one of us to take personal action to slow the spreaCDC on Twitter: "Remember the 3 W's when you are in a community setting!  #WearAMask. Wash your hands. Watch your distance (stay 6 feet apart). These  three habits can help you protectd of illness.

The best ways you can protect yourself and your families is to socially distance yourself from people outside of your home, and limit your potential exposure. Let's keep moving forward by practicing the 3 Ws: wear a mask, watch your distance, and wash your hands.

Increased COVID Rates Could Lead to Increased Mitigations

The IDPH will continue to closely monitor test positivity, ICU bed availability, and the number of people in the hospital with COVID-19. Should data show regions trending in the wrong direction, based on the established mitigation metrics, regions could once again find themselves in a higher tier with increased measures.

Vaccine Information from DuPage County Health Department

Since the pandemic began, DuPage County has been preparing to make one or more COVID-19 vaccines available as soon as possible. There is a nation-wide limited supply of COVID-19 vaccines, however it is believed that vaccine access will continually increase in the weeks and months to follow. The DuPage County Health Department is working with partners at all levels, including hospitals, health care providers, and community leaders, on flexible COVID-19 vaccination programs that can accommodate different vaccines and scenarios.

  • Vaccine Registration: Residents can sign up to receive updates on when and where their designated groups may begin to receive vaccines at https://dupagehealth.jotform.com/200694254415049.

Senior Citizen Resources

The Village of Lombard has compiled a list of resources for senior citizens, including senior shopping hours at grocery stores and pharmacies, details about food banks, and contact information for local organizations that are focused on providing senior assistance. If senior citizen information does not apply to you directly, we are hoping residents will share this information with senior citizens they know. With your help, we will all get through this together #LombardStrong.

Price Gouging

  • If you’ve been victimized by fraud, deception, or unfair methods of competition, the Consumer Protection Division of the Illinois Attorney General’s office may be able to help. Their limited mediation program can assist in resolving disputes or complaints filed by individual consumers. Promptness in making a complaint is important because it decreases the likelihood that a fly-by-night operator will move, leave town, or go out of business before consumers can gain assistance.
  • Consumer Complaint Online Submission Form https://ccformsubmission.ilattorneygeneral.net/  or call 1-800-386-5438.
