Bars and restaurants and now state parks are among the sweeping closures in the State of Illinois as officials try to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
Department of Natural Resources Police Sargeant John Williamson says barricades will be placed at the entrances of DeWitt County's Weldon Springs State Park and Clinton Lake. He indicates with the nice weather, the popularity of the parks will grow and become a gathering place for groups of all sizes.
The closures begin today and are indefinite. Any events at Illinois State Parks are effectively canceled. You can contact the Department of Natural Resources Parks administrative line at 217-782-6752.
