Following guidance from the CDC that fully vaccinated people can stop wearing a mask and practicing social distancing in most indoor and outdoor settings, Governor JB Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Public Health have announced that Illinois will align state executive orders with the latest CDC guidance and rescind IDPH emergency rules enforcing masking and distance.
The CDC continues to require masks for everyone in healthcare settings, in congregate settings and on transit. In addition, in line with CDC guidance, the Illinois State Board of Education and Illinois Department of Public Health require masks in schools. The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services requires masks in daycare.
In line with CDC guidance, individuals who are unvaccinated should continue wearing masks in most settings and both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals should continue to wear masks on public transportation, in congregate facilities, and in healthcare settings.
Village of Glen Ellyn Facilities
Fully vaccinated members of the public are welcome to enter Village facilities without wearing a mask. Signs are posted at the entrances of Village facilities providing guidance to visitors. These changes reflect the new state and national guidance for individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Per the new guidelines released last week, businesses can make their own operating decisions in regards to mask requirements. The decision to continue enforcing mask policies is up to each individual business in Glen Ellyn. As guidelines evolve, please continue to be responsible and respectful in cooperation with each business policy.
