During a Village Board meeting tonight on ZOOM, Bourbonnais Mayor Paul Schore announced some Village employees had tested positive for COVID-19 during a recent mass testing effort conducted by Riverside Healthcare in Kankakee.
“We’d like to thank Riverside and BBCHS for having their COVID-19 testing done today. Hopefully, the community went out and got tested.” Mayor Schore said tonight. “I know a lot of the Village people were surprised to find out they had it with no symptoms. Please get out and get tested if you can.”
Mayor Schore did not give any specifics on how many Village employees or staff had tested positive for the virus.
“We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation,” Bourbonnais Mayor Schore said Monday. “(Village) Lobbies are still closed. Anybody needing any attention can call the Village offices 815-937-3570 or at public works 815-937-0817.”
