3/1/2022 Mask Mandate

As of 2/28/2022 a new statewide indoor mask requirement has been issued.

[... Illinoisans can resume activities without wearing a mask indoors on February 28th except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. Federal requirements, in effect through at least March 18, include all transportation systems such as airports, planes, trains, and buses.
To account for the risk of community spread among more vulnerable populations, and in accordance with CDC guidance, Illinois will continue to require masks in the following settings:

  • Healthcare Settings: Continue mask requirement {THIS INCLUDES THE BERWYN HEALTH DISTRICT BUILDING}
  • Long Term Care Facilities: Continue mask requirement 
  • Congregate Settings (prisons, shelters, etc.): Continue mask requirement 
  • Transportation: Follow federal guidelines
  • Daycare: Follow Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) guidelines

Municipalities and businesses in most industries may choose to continue to implement more strict public health mitigations as they deem appropriate, including requiring masks...]

[Confused? Here’s what you need to know.

Masks will no longer be required in restaurants, bars and fitness centers among other places. But can businesses still require them? Yes, they can, according to officials. “We do expect and we’ve already seen certain businesses in certain settings make that decision and we’re fully in support of that,” Chicago Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady said recently on “Chicago Tonight.”

Do I need to wear a mask on public transportation? Yes. Masks are still required on all transportation systems, including buses, trains and planes, as well as at airports due to federal requirements that remain in effect through at least March 18.

Are masks still required in hospitals, health care facilities and long-term care facilities? Yes. Both city and state officials will require masks to be worn in high-risk settings, including hospitals, health care facilities, long-term care facilities and other congregate settings, such as prisons and shelters.

What about day care settings and schools? Masks will still be required in day care settings, according to state officials. As for schools, it’s complicated.
Recent court rulings have upended state officials’ plans for mask mandates to remain in effect in schools after the statewide mandate lifts on Monday. Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced Friday{2/25/22} students and staff will no longer be required to wear masks in Illinois schools as of Monday, after the Illinois Supreme Court declined to take up his request to overturn an appellate court decision.
Chicago Public Schools will require all students and staff to wear masks inside school buildings until August due to an agreement with the Chicago Teachers Union. The Archdiocese of Chicago says all schools will be mask optional starting Monday.

Can I still wear a mask if I want to? Yes. “We know there are plenty of people who will continue to wear masks at the individual level, we encourage and support that,” Arwady said. “We don’t want to see folks calling out people for wearing a mask.”

Even though the mask mandate has been lifted, when do officials recommend wearing one? Anyone who is immunocompromised or has a family member who is immunocompromised should continue to mask up, according to officials. They also advise children under the age of 5 who aren’t eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine to still wear a mask.

Officials also advise people wear a mask in crowded, indoor settings as well as following a COVID-19 infection. After five days of isolation or quarantine, city officials require individuals to wear a mask up to 10 days after infection in public spaces...]

With this in mind, the Berwyn Health District & Berwyn Township require that all persons entering the Health District Building wear a mask. We provide Covid testing and wish to keep all those who enter safe form COVID-19 and its variants.

Berwyn Township, with a population of 56,657 (2010 census) and over 22,000 households includes the area bounded on the north by Roosevelt Road, on the south by Pershing Road (39th Street), on the east by Lombard Avenue (west side of the street only), and on the west by Harlem Avenue (east side of the street only).

Berwyn Township was established by the Illinois Legislature in 1922 as one of the few coterminous townships in the state. The Berwyn Public Health District was established at the same time. Please note that the Township and the Berwyn Public Health District are two separate and distinct governmental bodies with separate governing Boards. The Township and Public Health District moved to their present headquarters at 6600 W. 26th Street in 1939. Built for $50,000, construction of the building was made possible by federal grants under the Works Progress Administration (WPA).

Berwyn Township and the Public Health District work diligently to provide you with valued services. 

Please contact our office if you have questions regarding a township or Health District service.
