The Chamber was notified by CHS officials today (FRI) that the business expo cannot be held at the school on March 26, 2020. The CUSD #15's contract states "The District reserves the right to refuse the use of school property at any time."
Due to developments surrounding Coronavirus Covid-19, Governor J.B. Pritzker held a press conference on March 12, 2020 discouraging any public gatherings of more than 250 people and mandating that gatherings of more than 1,000 be cancelled for at least 30 days, and possibly until May 1.
