Mayor Cyrulik says quote - "It is important for all of us to realize, now more than ever to pay attention to what the experts are telling us of what we can all do to assist, during this event. As the President of the United States and the Governor of the State of Illinois along with all of the medical experts keep telling us we need to maintain Social Distancing if you have to go out and the Stay At Home suggestions to keep everyone as safe as possible. If you read some of the stats the chances of you being a carrier could be fairly great, which it is wise to Stay at Home, when at all possible, to avoid you coming in contact with one of your loved ones or neighbors."
