Updated on March 6, 2020: Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been a topic of concern worldwide, and public safety is a top priority for the Village of Northbrook. The Village is fortunate to have highly skilled and dedicated first responders in our Police and Fire Departments who are trained and prepared for a wide array of emergencies. We also enjoy strong collaborative working relationships among all the area local governmental organizations.
In our continuing efforts to ensure that our community is protected and informed, the Village of Northbrook has joined together with many of our fellow governmental organizations to form the Glenview-Northbrook Coronavirus Task Force. The Task Force will provide weekly updates as long as is necessary and has developed a dedicated website for additional information and resources.

Posted on February 27, 2020: This week the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced a potential spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the United States. With agencies across the country reporting on the virus, the Village wants to provide some helpful information and everyday preventative measures.
The symptoms of coronavirus are similar to those of flu and may include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. While the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases do not appear to be spreading to communities throughout Illinois, the CDC and Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) encourage everyone to practice the following to prevent the spread of known viruses:
- Wash your hands frequently
- Avoid touching your face (eyes, nose, mouth) with unwashed hands
- Stay home if you feel ill and contact your doctor
- Cover coughs and sneezes
- Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects regularly
In order to provide up-to-date information and answer questions from residents, the IDPH launched the Illinois Novel Coronavirus Hotline and email account at 1-800-889-3931 or email@example.com.
The Village of Northbrook is closely monitoring the recommendations of the CDC, IDPH, and the Cook County Department of Public Health, and we will provide updates as they become available.
