Due to expanding concerns of COVID-19 and establishing necessary steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within the Village of Lincolnwood, essential businesses are highly encouraged to have a policy that all employees working in close proximity to the public or fellow employees are required to wear a surgical type face mask/covering. Additionally, essential businesses that are serving or preparing food items, should additionally require the use of disposable gloves.
Members of the public that are customers of essential businesses are also highly encouraged to utilize masks and/or suitable face coverings when entering essential businesses. Essential businesses operating within the Village may reserve the right to refuse service and/or entry to customers not wearing protective face masks or coverings.
These guidelines for face masks and coverings are based on the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Please visit their website here for more information, including how to wear and make a cloth face mask/covering.
