Staying Safe as High-Risk Individual During COVID-19 Pandemic 

If you are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 because of your age or because you have a serious long-term health problem, it is extra important for you to take actions to reduce your risk of getting sick with the disease. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/need-extra-precautions/what-you-can-do.html

  • Stay home if possible.
  • Wash your hands often.
  • Take everyday precautions to keep space between yourself and others (stay 6 feet away, which is about two arm lengths).
  • Keep away from people who are sick.
  • Stock up on supplies.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched services.
  • Avoid all cruise travel and non-essential air travel.
  • Call your healthcare professional if you have concerns about COVID-19 and your underlying condition or if you are sick.

Proper Disposal of Medical Waste and PPE

Residents are reminded to dispose of protective masks and gloves in the trash. These items are considered medical waste. They and are NOT recyclable and are also a health concern for employees in the recycling plant.  

Pets and COVID-19

If you are sick with COVID-19 (either suspected or confirmed), you should restrict contact with pets and other animals, just like you would around other people. Although there have been no reports of pets becoming sick with COVID-19 in the United States, it is still recommended that people sick with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus. This can help ensure both you and your animals stay healthy.  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/animals.html

  • When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals while you are sick.
  • Avoid contact with your pet including, petting, snuggling, being kissed or licked, and sharing food.
  • If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wash your hands before and after you interact with them.

DuPage County Health Department Map

The DuPage County Health Department’s COVID-19 dashboard, shows the number of lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases in each municipality. As of 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8, 2020, there are 49 lab confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Lombard. Please see the map for updates.

The best way you can protect yourself is to socially distance yourself from people outside of your home, and limit your potential exposure. Wash your hands regularly, for 20 seconds, using soap, and do not touch your face with unwashed hands.



Ongoing reminders regarding covid-19

Thank you, Lombard! From first responders, to first graders… we’re all in this together.  Thank you for acting responsibly and cooperating with the Stay at Home Order issued by the State of Illinois, currently in effect to help flatten the curve of the coronavirus, and to help keep our community healthy.

With your continued support, we will get through this #LombardStrong.

A Message to the Community From Village President Keith Giagnorio

On March 31, Village President Keith Giagnorio shared a message regarding COVID-19 and its impacts on Lombard. President Giagnorio encouraged community members to be prepared, not panicked, and reminded residents that we will get through this Lombard Strong. View this message below.

Senior Citizen Resources

The Village of Lombard has compiled a list of resources for senior citizens, including senior shopping hours at grocery stores and pharmacies, details about food banks, and contact information for local organizations that are focused on providing senior assistance.

If senior citizen information does not apply to you directly, we are hoping residents will share this information with senior citizens they know. With your help, we will all get through this together #LombardStrong.

Lombard Park District Statement: March 26, 2020 

The Lombard Park District has closed all playgrounds, tennis courts, basketball courts, disc golfing courses and athletic fields. It is impossible for youth to maintain a safe social distance while playing team sports. Please consider all sports fields in the community closed to all team sports play and practice until further notice. https://lombardparks.com/park-district-program-suspensions/

What you CAN do while maintaining social distancing:

  • Go to the grocery store or pharmacy
  • Pick up food from local restaurants. Shop local and support your local businesses! Contact your local restaurant to see if they are providing pick up. The Lombard Chamber of Commerce has started a Facebook page that shares information about Lombard businesses that are providing take out/delivery or specials at www.facebook.com/lombardtakeout.
  • Receive medical care
  • Call a plumber or electrician
  • Go to the bank, post office, or gas station
  • Enjoy an open space, including trails or parks. (Playgrounds are closed.)
  • Take a walk, run, or bike ride

What you cannot and should NOT do:

  • Buy more than you need
  • Dine-in at restaurants or bars
  • Go to the gym, salon, or barber shop
  • Travel for non-essential (above listed) purposes
  • Visit a playground
  • Gather in groups
  • Ignore social distancing. While exercising outside, you should still practice social distancing by running or walking at least six feet away from other people.
  • Go out or interact with other people if you’re sick.

Rumor control:

  • Lombard Police will not pull over cars for being on the road to check for compliance with the Governor’s Order but they are still enforcing standard traffic laws, so you should still buckle up, stay off your phone and not speed.    
  • Lombard Police will not be ticketing or arresting people that are outside. As we are also sharing close quarters with our families, we too understand the need for a stroll around the block. If encountering a situation where people are gathering, Lombard Police may ask the group to disperse and go home. Common sense is highly encouraged.
  • Lombard Police are continuing to serve and protect. This includes non-coronavirus concerns. Please do not hesitate to dial 9-1-1 if you witness or experience an unsafe situation.
  • The Illinois National Guard is supporting logistics, transportation, and medical response efforts. The National Guard will not be enforcing the Stay at Home Order. (www.coronavirus.illinois.gov) Which again – is good news for that much needed stroll around the block.

Main Street Construction Project: IDOT to Continue Construction

The Village has been notified that IDOT will continue to proceed with the planned Main Street Improvement Project, beginning in April. 

The Main Street Improvement project is Federally funded through the Surface Transportation Program administered through the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). The Village is funding 30% of the project cost with local funding sources. Since the project contract is awarded and administered by IDOT, the Village must adhere to IDOT’s policies relative to construction.  The Village has been in contact with IDOT and been informed that, “there are no plans to stop or suspend construction. Workers who support the construction of critical or strategic infrastructure are considered essential by the Department of Homeland Security and have a special responsibility to maintain a normal work schedule. With our partners in industry, we will strive to keep this construction season on schedule.” Additionally, construction has been determined an essential service through the Executive Order issued by Governor Pritzker. The Village continues to review its services and programs to ensure that the health and safety of the residents, employees and businesses is the primary objective.

  1. Additional curbside items will only be collected if less than 50-lbs each that are easily handled by one worker. Larger/heavier items should not be put out until further notice.

Lombard Metra Station Closed to Public 

The Village has been notified that the Lombard Metra station has been closed to the public. The closures are in place to protect employees and passengers from unnecessary exposure or spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

Price Gouging

  • If you’ve been victimized by fraud, deception, or unfair methods of competition, the Consumer Protection Division of the Illinois Attorney General’s office may be able to help. Their limited mediation program can assist in resolving disputes or complaints filed by individual consumers. Promptness in making a complaint is important because it decreases the likelihood that a fly-by-night operator will move, leave town, or go out of business before consumers can gain assistance.
  • Consumer Complaint Online Submission Form https://ccformsubmission.ilattorneygeneral.net/  or call 1-800-386-5438.

Door-To-Door Scammers

Remember: The Village has suspended all solicitor permits. If someone comes to your house that you don’t know – don’t answer. If you feel unsafe or witness suspicious behavior, call 9-1-1.
