Kane County Coronavirus Update

CDC Handwashing

Today, the first confirmed case of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, was announced to have been detected in Kane County.  We want to reach out to our residents and share this news with you, as a part of our commitment to keep you informed of events that impact upon your safety.  

The Village is currently coordinating with other local communities, the Kane County Health Department, the Illinois Department of Public Health, the Governor’s Office, the White House and the Centers for Disease Control, and is remaining informed of all developments relating to the spread of the illness.  We are actively engaging with local, state and federal government to ensure that the Village has the most current information and access to all available resources.

We want to reiterate to residents that the most effective means of controlling the spread of coronavirus are simple actions that are also effective against colds, the flu, and other viruses.  The Centers for Disease Control has an extensive information page on the coronavirus on their website, as well as a page on the most effective means of preventing the spread of coronavirus, available here.  The most effective means remain:

  1. Wash your hands, vigorously, with soap and water for at least 20 seconds on a regular basis, and any time before you eat or touch your face. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol.
  2. Regularly disinfect commonly used community surfaces.
  3. Cover your mouth when you cough (by coughing into the crook of your elbow).
  4. If you are sick, stay home.
  5. If you display the symptoms of the Coronavirus, seek medical care. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure, and include fever, cough and shortness of breath. If you develop those symptoms, if you have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you have recently traveled to an area where it has a large presence, you should immediately contact your doctor.
  6. Avoid close contact with people who are sick, and avoid large crowds.

We have coordinated our efforts with the local School District, and they are actively monitoring the illness.  They have also implemented measures to help reduce the potential for the illness to spread.

If any residents have questions, please feel free to contact the Village at info@pingreegrove.org or 847/464-5533.  Again, we are committed to providing relevant updates as they become available.  Be safe, and wash your hands!!
