Share post:

A day after a patient in her 60s at Chateau Nursing Home in Willowbrook, a long term care facility, tested positive for coronavirus, Dupage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin said, “I will be signing a disaster proclamation for all of DuPage County effective Monday morning.”

By signing such a declaration, the move puts the County’s emergency operation plan into play.

“This comprehensive plan provides coordinated resources to specific assets allocated to DuPage County to aid in the ongoing response and recovery of COVID-19 that is affecting much of our nation.” Cronin said, “We are taking every possible action to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 in our communities.”
