Jesse White Announces Closure of All Driver Services Facilities Effective March 17th

Jesse White Announces Closure of All Driver Services Facilities Effective March 17th

March 16th, 2020 – Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White is announcing that all offices, including Driver Services facilities statewide, will be closed to the public due to the COVID-19 virus and the health and safety recommendations by experts endorsing social distancing efforts. The closures will take effect from March 17 through March 31. Expiration dates for driver’s licenses, identification (ID) cards, vehicle registrations, and other transactions and document filings will be extended by 30 days through an emergency rule. White also joins a growing list of states and industries calling on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to push back the Oct. 1, 2020, federal REAL ID deadline due to the impact COVID-19 is having on the general public and driver’s license and ID card-issuing agencies nationwide. “After careful consideration, it is clear that this decision to close offices and Driver Services facilities is the right one to make for the health and safety of Illinoisans,” said White. “This important action will help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.” White is reminding residents that many transactions with the Secretary of State’s office may be conducted online at www.cyberdriveillinois.com. Customers are encouraged to take advantage of these online services, some of which include:

· obtaining a duplicate driver’s license or ID card;

· renewing a vehicle registration;

· obtaining a driver record abstract;

· renewing a standard driver’s license with the Safe Driver Renewal program;

· filing Business Services documents, such as incorporations and annual reports;

· customers with issues involving administrative hearings may contact 312-793-3722 or 217-782-7065. White stressed that the office will continue to monitor the COVID-19 crisis. Expert advice, news, and events involving the virus will influence the reopening date of offices and the Driver Services facilities. “We will do everything we can to help protect the health and safety of our residents,” said White. “This will, and must, be the guiding principle of our decision making.”

Macon Resources Inc. Announce Changes Due to COVID-19

Champaign County Announces First Positive COVID-19 Case

Champaign County Announces First Positive COVID-19 Case

March 15th, 2020 – Champaign Urbana Public Health District has announced the first case of COVID-19 in Champaign County. The resident is a female in her 50s and is in home isolation and recovering. Public health officials are identifying and contacting all close contacts. The resident had not traveled recently but had been in contact with someone that had traveled to Italy recently. She presented in the ER with a fever, cough, and shortness of breath. The resident had reached out to her primary care physician before coming to the emergency room at Carle. The Champaign Urbana Public Health District stated that they have 50 other cases that are awaiting test results at this time.

The Illinois Department of Public Health today announced 29 new cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) across Illinois.  Counties now reporting cases – Champaign, Clinton, Sangamon, Whiteside, and Winnebago.  Other locations with cases include Chicago and Cook, Cumberland, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, St. Clair, and Woodford counties.

“We are seeing the number of COVID-19 cases increase exponentially and in more locations across Illinois,” said IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike.  “At this point, it is best to assume that the coronavirus is circulating in your community and you should take the same precautions when interacting with other people that you would when interacting with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.  This may seem like an extreme step, but this is how we reduce the number of new cases and prevent the health care system from being overwhelmed.”

Currently, IDPH is reporting 93 cases in 13 counties in Illinois.  Cases have occurred in all age ranges and the number of cases that do not have a clear connection to travel or a known COVID-19 case is increasing.

Social distancing measures, such as working from home when possible, limiting the amount of time spent in the community, and trying to avoid public transportation as much as possible, will help reduce the number of people who become sick at any given time and the possibility of exhausting our health care resources.

For information about how you, your school, workplace, and community can prepare, please visit Preventing COVID-19 Spread in Communities.  For general questions about COVID-19, call the hotline at 1-800-889-3931 or email dph.sick@illinois.gov.

A list of local health departments can be found on the IDPH website.

Decatur Park District Opens “Schools Out Day Camp”

March 14th, 2020 – The Decatur Park District is committed to protecting the health and safety of our patrons and staff while monitoring the recent COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. Due to the State of Illinois mandate to close all k-12 schools and the increased demand it places on local families; we will be opening our Schools Out Day Camp at the Decatur Indoor Sports Center (DISC) in order to help meet the needs of our community.

Students aged 5-14 can be registered to attend Schools Out Day Camp online at www.decatur-parks.org, in person at the DISC or if a returning enrollment, registration can be completed over the phone by calling the DISC 217-429-3472. Camp attendees will need to bring their own lunch. Attendance will be limited to 75 total participants per day with groups being divided into 3 different cohorts of 25 participants each.

“We realize we have an important role in slowing the spread of diseases and protecting vulnerable students and staff, but we also want to be part of the solution by providing students with a safe and healthy environment/place during this unprecedented time,” stated Bill Clevenger, Executive Director of the Decatur Park District.

In accordance with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) recommendation, any child who has severe underlying chronic medical conditions that may put them at a higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness or are showing symptoms of illness should stay home.

We urge everyone to keep abreast of the latest public health information via the CDC website at www.cdc.gov, Illinois Department of Public Health and the Macon County Health Department.

Please visit www.decatur-parks.org for activity and program news related to program suspensions and facility closure updates.

Macon County Jail to Suspend All Public Visitations Until Further Notice

Macon County Jail to Suspend All Public Visitations Until Further Notice

March 13th, 2020 – The Macon County Jail will suspend all public on-site inmate visitation until further notice in an attempt to minimize individuals who utilize the public visitation booths at the jail from contracting COVID-19 (Coronavirus).  The members of the public who have scheduled a visit for Friday, March 13, 2020, will still be allowed to visit, however, future visits will not be allowed.  Off-site visiting with inmates will still be allowed via remote visitation through the visitation website at https://securustech.net/ .

We will be continuously monitoring this constantly evolving situation and the visitations will be reinstated as soon as it has been determined it is safe to do so.  We understand this does have an impact on some members of the community who rely on on-site visiting, however, we also want to do everything we can to minimize the spread of this virus throughout the community.

Attorneys with clients currently housed in the jail will still be allowed to do on-site visits.  We do encourage them to take precautions when doing so and by not visiting (if possible) if they have:

 

  • Traveled to an area where COVID-19 is spreading within the past 14 days, or had close contact with someone who has;

 

  • Been around people who are sick with colds or flu or had symptoms themselves;

 

  • Had a fever or have a fever within the past week;

 

  • Have been nauseated, have vomited or had diarrhea in the past week.

 

The McLean County Jail has also suspended visitations until April 10th.

University of Illinois Students Vote in Favor of New Mascot

University of Illinois Students Vote in Favor of New Mascot

March 10th, 2020 – University of Illinois students have voted in favor of adopting a new mascot for the University. The female Belted Kingfisher, a blue and white bird with orange mixed in, was voted on in a non-binding referendum as a preliminary proposal to adopt the new mascot. The referendum is not intended to change the name of the “Fighting Illini,” but instead to replace the mascot (Chief Illiniwek) by the NCAA in 2005. The vote passed by a 4,222 to 3,597 margin in favor of the bird. The referendum now goes to University Administration for a decision. According to Robin Kaler, the spokesperson for the University of Illinois Chancellor Robert Jones, there are no plans to choose a mascot at this time.
