Village of Channahon Logo

UPDATE - March 17, 2020

Utility Payments

In light of the issues residents are facing, the Village of Channahon is extending the March 31, 2020 utility bill due date to April 20, 2020 in an effort to assist those residents who may have difficulty making their monthly payment. In response to the recommended social distancing, the Village encourages you to make your utility payment via US mail, online or via the drop box located outside of Village Hall at 24555 S. Navajo Drive.

Closing of Illinois Bars and Restaurants

In response to COVID-19, Governor Pritzker has ordered all bars and restaurants to suspend service and no longer allow on-premises consumption. These establishments are, however, allowed to provide carryout or delivery options if they so wish. Within this executive order, Governor Pritzker has also prohibited all public and private gatherings in the State of Illinois for groups of 50 or more, beginning March 18, 2020. More information on Governor Pritzker’s Executive Order can be found here: http://bit.ly/3b18WOy

COVID-19 Impact on Small Businesses

The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) is working diligently to secure access to helpful resources for small businesses throughout the State of Illinois at this time.

As part of this process, DCEO needs to collect information from small businesses that will be negatively impacted. This information will assist them in requesting an economic injury disaster declaration from the Small Business Administration.

If you are the owner of a small business, please fill out this form (link) so that the necessary information can be gathered and presented to the Small Business Administration.

Channahon Park District

Based on the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19 and recommendations from the Illinois Department of Public Health to limit public gatherings, Channahon Park District is closing its facilities Tuesday, March 17 until further notice. This is in addition to canceling and suspending all programs and activities.

Arrowhead Community Center will be open 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17 for voting only.

Heritage Bluffs Public Golf Club will remain open with limited service. Click here for information on Heritage Bluffs.

You will be refunded or credited for any canceled programs, rentals and events. We will evaluate memberships and based on length of closure determine a manner in which to compensate members.

Channahon Park District customer service staff will be available via phone at 815-467-7275 Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

ComEd Energy Assistance Program

ComEd is taking action to help its customers with payment assistance programs and by imposing a moratorium on service disconnections and waiving late payment charges through at least May 1, as many businesses and institutions are following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by taking temporary measures to shut down or limit operations to control the spread of COVID-19. ComEd is also taking steps to expand awareness of the programs in place to help customers through temporary or extended financial hardship and will be working with customers on a case-by-case basis to establish payment arrangements and identify energy assistance options. For more information, please visit ComEd.com/CARE or call 800-334-7661.

Waste Management

Based on available information to date, Waste Management of Illinois, LLC (Waste Management) is maintaining their standard operations, and they are not experiencing service interruptions at this time. However, the COVID-19 situation is evolving daily, and if circumstances change that may impact their ability to provide services as scheduled, they will provide prompt updates to customers and communities.

UPDATE - March 16, 2020

Although Village Hall is currently OPEN, in light of the ongoing recommendations from the CDC regarding social distancing with COVID-19, we are asking all residents to please refrain from coming into Village Hall unless it is absolutely necessary for you to do so.

Payments

Payments may be made online or via the drop box in our parking lot. Payments WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED IN-PERSON for the time being. No cash payments will be accepted.

Primary General Election Voting

Voting for the Primary General Election is still scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday, March 17) from 6 a.m. - 7 p.m. If Village Hall is your designated polling place, you will be able to come in to vote.

Channahon Park District

In an effort to protect the community from the spread of COVID-19, effective today, March 16, 2020, the Channahon Park District has suspended all programs until further notice.

Updates can be found on the Park District’s website (link): https://www.channahonpark.org/coronavirus-information/ 

Emergency Services

WESCOM, our dispatch center, has implemented additional COVID-19 screening questions for certain symptom-specific 9-1-1 calls. Please be patient with dispatchers as they work through the emergency medical dispatch protocols.

Gathering as much information as possible in advance of the arrival to scene allows first responders to take the necessary precautions to reduce their risk of exposure.

At the Village, the safety of our residents, staff and officials is always our highest priority. We will continue to share updates on the situation on our website and social media.

As always, if residents have any questions, we encourage them to reach out to us via phone at (815) 467-6644.

UPDATE - March 6, 2020: Information provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) about Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Diseases can make anyone sick, regardless of their race or ethnicity.

People of Asian descent, including Chinese Americans, are not more likely to get COVID-19 than any other American. Help stop fear by letting people know that being of Asian descent does not increase the chance of getting or spreading COVID-19.

The risk of getting COVID-19 in the U.S. is currently low.

Some people who have traveled to places where many have gotten sick with COVID-19 may be monitored by health officials to protect their health and the health of other people in the community.

Someone who has completed quarantine or has been released from isolation does not pose a risk of infection to other people.

For up-to-date information, visit the CDC’s coronavirus disease situation summary page (link): https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/summary.html 

You can help stop COVID-19 by knowing the signs and symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

Seek medical advice if you develop symptoms AND have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or live in or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19. Call ahead before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room. Tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms.

There are simple things you can do to help keep yourself and others healthy.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
