COVID-19 - Coronavirus, Guidelines and Information

Although the Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center is responsible for ensuring quality environmental health for Lake County residents, the Village of Lake Barrington has been closely monitoring reports and recommendations from local, state, and national health agencies regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and has developed this webpage to keep the community informed with the latest updates.

Lake Barrington village officials have been in regular communication with state and county health officials on preparations and precautions regarding COVID-19. In addition, village staff have been meeting to review emergency operations plans and discuss response activities based on current circumstances and future potential.

The Village of Lake Barrington is committed to providing updated information as it becomes available during this evolving situation. As health officials learn more about COVID-19, the overall consensus is to be aware, be prepared, stay informed and practice healthy habits and preventable actions:

- Wash your hands often
- Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
- Avoid contact with sick people
- Stay home if you are sick
- Cover mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

In addition, if you feel sick with a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing or if you have been in contact with someone confirmed with COVID-19, please call your healthcare provider and notify them of your symptoms and any recent travel. Your healthcare provider will determine if you need to be seen in the office and if so, will provide special instructions to prevent exposing others.


 The Village of Lake Barrington will continue to release notable information to residents and businesses as the community responds to the COVID-19 pandemic.


            Governor JB Pritzker signed Executive Order 2020-32 (available via this link) that modified and extended his original Stay at Home Order.
The order goes into effect on May 1 and lasts through May 29.

NEW: Congresswoman Underwood’s comprehensive coronavirus (COVID-19) resource guide is a nearly 50 page one-stop shop for local, state, and federal resources and will be updated regularly.

Now available is the COVID-19 Symptom Checker which is the best way for patients to find the care they need. By answering a few simple questions, you can quickly learn what you need to do next – from seeing a provider with a video visit – 24/7 – to contacting their doctor.

Lake County has released a Coronavirus Data Hub to centralize data related to COVID-19 in Lake County. The hub includes the number of cases and deaths in Lake County and in the State of Illinois, an interactive map of COVID-19 cases by municipality, demographic breakdowns of cases, and charts showing trends in cases and deaths over time. This is a great resource; however, it is not reflective of all those in the county who have been infected, but not yet tested. Visit the data hub

Fraud & Scam Protection: The Department of Justice is remaining vigilant in detecting, investigating, and prosecuting wrongdoing related to the crisis. Find out how you can protect yourself and helpful resources on DOJ’s Coronavirus Fraud Prevention website. The Federal Trade Commission has also established a website with helpful information to help consumers avoid coronavirus-related scams.  

The Village of Lake Barrington will continue to update this COVID-19 webpage as additional information and guidance is obtained by health officials.
