In alignment with the guidance of the governor’s office and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Town of Normal issued COVID-19 Emergency Order 21-001 outlining mask requirements for public facilities and employees.
Effective immediately, the Town will not impose any mask or social distancing requirements more restrictive than those set forth in the governor’s Executive Order 2021-10:
“The Town’s order formally provides guidance to Town of Normal employees and the use of masks in Town facilities,” said Mayor Chris Koos. “The Town has always followed the guidance of the CDC and state and local health officials and will continue to do so. Private businesses will make their own decisions about guidance they provide to employees and customers.”
Some exceptions to the order exist:
As the state transitions to Restore Illinois Phase 5, masking requirements may be lifted, as appropriate.
When the state enters enter Phase 5, the Town plans to return to in-person Council meetings. Currently, Phase 5 may be reached in mid-June, making the first anticipated in-person Council meeting likely to happen June 21.
