From NBC 5 Chicago: “Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker has announced a statewide stay-at-home order aimed at stopping the spread of coronavirus. The order is expected to begin at 5 p.m. Saturday and continue until the end of April 7. Schools will also remain closed in the state until that date, Pritzker said. “We know this will be hard and we’re looking for every tool we have to get through this crisis,” Pritzker said. In addition, the governor ordered municipalities to halt all evictions and directed additional resources to help homeless residents. School districts will continue supplying meals to students who need them. Meanwhile, all Chicago parks and libraries will be closed while the order is in effect. “I want to say to be clear, this is not a lockdown, it’s not martial law,” Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said. “There’s absolutely no need to change your normal purchasing habits. Please, the grocery stores will remain open and stocked. So please be mindful of your neighbors and do not hoard. Remember, this is the new normal, for now.” More from the source here: NBC 5 Governor Issue Stay At Home Order
DO NOT Flush So Called “Flushable” Wipes
Please Support “Social Distancing” Efforts
USING WIPES AT HOME – DO NOT FLUSH THEM – we will have more back-ups and overflows if you do. So Called “Flushable Wipes” are not truly flushable, no matter what the label says. Clogs will result in traffic into your home, at a time it needs to be reduced. Non-emergency and non-life threatening work orders are suspended until further notice so we can focus our labor on common areas and in the interest of protecting residents AND our staff. We respectfully but strongly encourage residents, neighbors and staff to do everything you can as individuals to support efforts to protect yourselves, each other and our staff.
Some STRONG suggestions:
– If you are sick, remain in your home unless directed by the authorities or a medical professional. Contact your health professional and otherwise remain in your home for 14 days. If you need help with anything or have questions, please contact Management at 773-769-3250 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can provide additional guidance. If you do not have a medical professional to consult, you can contact City of Chicago Dept of Health at email@example.com or call the City at 312-746-4835 or 311.
– Limit any traffic in, out and through the building. It is highly discourage to host any guests at this time. The less traffic, the less person to person risk and exposure.
– Take the 6 foot rule seriously. Give each other and the staff personal distance, in the lobby, hallways, laundry room, management office, package room, garage and other common locations.
– Do not overcrowd the elevator. This is already a tight place, with rails and buttons that see a lot of hands and fingers. If you see multiple individuals in a cab, be patient, take the extra time and wait.
In addition, follow basic guidelines suggested by CDC:
Thank you for your patience, efforts and diligence.
