Proof of Vaccination Order
In response to the current COVID-19 surge of cases and hospitalizations in the Village of Skokie and surrounding areas, the Skokie Health and Human Services Department has issued an order requiring proof of vaccination for customers of indoor settings where food or drink are served for on-premises consumption, like restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues as well as in fitness facilities. The order is effective beginning on January 10, 2022, and is being instituted to protect the community's health and avoid the wide-spread business shutdowns that occurred in the early days of the pandemic.
Masks Required in all Public, Indoor Settings
The Skokie Health and Human Services Department (HHS) announced that effective on August 23, 2021, all individuals over age two who can medically tolerate a mask, are required to wear a mask indoors. The order requires mask wearing in common areas of multi-unit residential buildings and public places, such as restaurants, movie theaters, retail establishments, fitness clubs and on public transportation. Vaccination, masking in public indoor settings and social distancing remain the most effective means of slowing the transmission of COVID-19.According to the order, businesses will be required to post signage that states that masks are required. The Village of Skokie has created a sign that can be posted by employers. Download a copy of the mask order sign.
