Coronavirus Updates

Streets are quiet due to a "shelter in place" order given to residents to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus on March 20, 2020 in Oak Park,Illinois. Oak Park has issued a “shelter-in-place” order as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, after two emergency room physicians at Rush Oak Park Hospital tested positive for COVID-19 and Gov. J.B. Pritzker plans to issue the same for the entire state starting Saturday.
