UPDATE - COVID-19 PHASE 4 INFORMATION

 
 
 On June 26, 2020 the Village of Bridgeview, along with the State of Illinois moved into Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan.  This was accomplished by meeting the following standards:

 

·         A continued decline in the rate of infection in new COVID-19 cases.

·         Hospitals have capacity and can quickly adapt for a surge of new cases in their communities.

·         Testing is widely available.

·         Tracing is commonplace.

 

Additional measures can be carefully lifted allowing for schools and child care programs to reopen with social distancing policies in place. Restaurants can open with limited capacity and following strict public health procedures, including personal protective equipment for employees. Gatherings with 50 people or fewer will be permitted..

 

Please note:

·         There are no late fees for any payment due to the Village (Until Further Notice)

HOW WE MOVE TO THE NEXT PHASE

 

Post-pandemic: Vaccine, effective and widely available treatment, or the elimination of new cases over a sustained period of time through herd immunity or other factors.

 



WHAT COULD CAUSE US TO MOVE BACK

 

IDPH will closely monitor data and receive on-the-ground feedback from local health departments and regional healthcare councils and will recommend moving back to the previous phase based on the following factors:

  • Sustained rise in positivity rate
  • Sustained increase in hospital admissions for COVID-19 like illness
  • Reduction in hospital capacity threatening surge capabilities
  • Significant outbreak in the region that threatens the health of the region

 

The Village of Bridgeview continues to monitor developments pertaining to COVID-19 and will react as necessary to protect the health of our residents.  We encourage to everyone to continue to practice social distancing, use proper personal protective equipment as required and to keep as safe as you can.
