A message from Village Clerk Sol Cabachuela (Spanish)

The coronavirus has now infected more than 1.2 million people across the country, and African Americans, Hispanics and other minority populations are disproportionately being affected by the virus and the illness it causes: COVID-19. Better communication about the virus in minority communities is needed “so that everyone understands what it’s going to take for us all to protect one another,” White House coronavirus task force response coordinator Deborah Birx, M.D., recently said at a recent news briefing. The Village of Mundelein is fortunate to have Village Clerk Sol Cabachuela as a trusted voice to address this issue. Please take a moment to watch an important video in which Clerk Cabachuela discusses ways to protect the Latino community.

Governor Pritzker Unveils 5-part Plan to Reopen Illinois

Gov. J.B. Pritzker has outlined a five-phase plan for reopening the state as the threat from COVID-19 subsides, but the speed with which people may resume former activities remains dependent on vigilance against the coronavirus. The plan called, “Restore Illinois,” indicates that the state has already entered the plan’s second phase. It’s defined by loosened restrictions on the governor’s stay-at-home order, allowing more social interaction while wearing face coverings. Please view the details of each phase of the plan.
