We have come a long way in Lake County’s battle with COVID-19. From the peaks of spring when we were seeing nearly 300 new cases a day, we now are at a new low of just 15 new cases on June 15th! Amazing progress. Staying vigilant works; please keep up the good work. We anticipate moving into Phase Four of the Governor’s reopening plan at the end of this month and I will be sending out new guidelines and updates on Phase Four as the time comes. Please visit the health department’s website for the most up to date information.
As we get into the swing of summer, you can now visit several local restaurants, not just for takeout, but to enjoy outdoor dining.Here is the list of restaurants open for outdoor dining in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff according to the LF/LB Chamber of Commerce. You can also find the list of restaurants with outdoor dining below. I am sure we could all use some good socially distanced dining after the months of eating inside!
