As this includes the restriction of indoor dining, the Village is strongly encouraging residents to support local restaurants and businesses during this challenging time.
Ordering food for pick up or delivery is a great way that you can help support your local restaurants. We remind you to check out the Hinsdale To-Go Facebook Page for local curbside, delivery, and service options during this time. In addition, a number of restaurants may choose to remain open for outdoor dining. The Village encourages you to connect with local establishments for further information on their hours and services during this time.
You can also support our region by doing your part to help slow the spread of illness. Mitigation measures are based on COVID-19 positivity rates. In order to return to Phase 4, COVID-19 positivity rates must be less than or equal to 6.5% over a 3 day period. To help decrease our region’s positivity rate and return to Phase 4, residents are strongly urged to follow the 3 W’s that include: washing hands, watching your distance, and wearing a mask.
