COVID-19 Resource page

As you are aware, the World Health Organization has declared the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) a Global Health Emergency. 
The health and safety of our communities' residents and visitors is Chicago's North Shore's highest priority. Travelers are encouraged to always exercise healthy travel habits when traveling and to follow guidance issued by official sources of public health information.

Suppor the Local Community:

However, there are some things we do know:

Governor Pritzker recently issued a disaster declaration regarding the coronavirus outbreak. This announcement calls for the halt to dining in restaurants but allows for take-out and delivery. By acting now, it is their hope to arrest the spread of the virus. 

Chicago’s North Shore's hotels remain ready to receive guests and many of our restaurants are open for delviery and carry out. They, too, have been working closely with state and local health care officials and have detailed contingency plans in place, if needed.

As you know, Chicago’s North Shore hotels and restaurants also welcome our area's residents. So please consider what you and your colleagues can do to remain “all in” with the North Shore. Please take the time to review CDC guidelines and use them as a common-sense guide for continuing to actively explore and enjoy our city. You might consider:

  • Order take out or delivery from your favorite local restaurant or explore a new interest. The hard-working men and women there need your support.
  • If you would rather, still be supportive and consider buying gift cards now to use in the future. 
  • Visit your favorite outdoor park or nature center for some fresh air. 

Looking ahead, we don’t think it’s too soon for all of us to start thinking strategically about moving forward after COVID-19, and Chicago's North Shore is looking forward to working with you to make an immediate impact. We will also begin planning and collaborating with our partners and constituents on a game plan – when needed – to warmly and positively invite those who may have temporarily delayed their leisure or business activities to return and enjoy all that we are known for. We will keep you posted on those developments as well.
