Dear fellow residents of East Dundee,
I regret to inform you that COVID-19 has officially arrived in East Dundee with at least one confirmed case being reported. This brings the total number of cases in Kane County to 113. Now, more than ever, we need to come together as a community and continue to follow the Stay Home Order that was issued by the Governor. If we, as a community, can limit our interactions outside of our home and practice social distancing when it is necessary to leave, we can all contribute to limiting the spread of this virus. The past few weeks may already seem like a lifetime but it is our responsibility as a community to take control by doing what we can to curb the spread of the virus. I want to say thank you to all of the essential workers who have already given so much and put their lives at risk. As difficult as it may be now, I believe East Dundee is resilient enough to endure these difficult times and set a good example for other communities to follow as we all try to flatten the curve.
Also, our local businesses need our help right now more than ever. Please stay local by ordering from East Dundee restaurants providing take out and delivery options. This is a great way to support local businesses while keeping a safe distance. Look for their menus and hours on their websites and Facebook pages.
