Illinois Mask Mandate
Governor Pritzker has announced his intention to lift the statewide indoor mask requirement effective Monday, February 28, 2022. As such, Illinois residents can resume activities without wearing a mask indoors except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. Federal requirements, in effect through at least March 18, include all transportation systems such as airports, planes, trains, and buses.
To account for the risk of community spread among more vulnerable populations, and in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance, the State of Illinois will continue to require masks in the following settings:
- Healthcare Settings: Continue mask requirement
- Long Term Care Facilities: Continue mask requirement
- Congregate Settings (prisons, shelters, etc.): Continue mask requirement
- Transportation: Follow federal guidelines
- Daycare: Follow Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) guidelines
COVID-19 testing is available at community-based testing sites run by the State as well as through various private providers. If you are in need of a COVID-19 test, please call your primary care physician, visit one of the state-run community-based testing sites or find a testing location near you at dph.illinois.gov/covid19testing.
Free At-Home COVID-19 Tests
Free FDA-authorized coronavirus test kits are available through a federal program. Every home in the United States is eligible for two (2) orders of four (4) free at-home COVID-19 rapid antigen tests. Visit www.covidtests.gov to learn more and order your tests.
CAUTION: Pop-Up Testing Sites
A nationwide shortage of COVID-19 tests and available testing appointments has led many Illinois residents to turn to what are known as “pop-up” testing sites. Please be aware that these testing sites are not licensed or regulated by any government agency, and the Village of Lombard cannot confirm the legitimacy of individual pop-up testing locations.
A Jan. 11, 2022 advisory from the Illinois Attorney General’s Office encourages residents to ask questions before visiting a pop-up testing location or to utilize a state-sponsored testing site.
Vaccinations against COVID-19 are now widely available at locations including mass vaccination sites or events, pharmacies and doctor's offices.To find a vaccine provider near you, visit www.vaccines.gov.
Seniors who need help registering for a vaccine appointment and homebound residents requiring in-home administration of the vaccine should reach out to the DuPage County Health Department at (630) 682-7400.
