The Village of Sugar Grove is taking proactive steps to prepare for and respond to COVID-19 and remains in open communication with its partners at Kane County and the State of Illinois. Village staff continues to further develop a response to keep residents, staff and visitors to Village buildings healthy, safe and informed.

We have taken precautions so that the Village can carry on daily business throughout the entire pandemic, to all residents. Out of an abundance of caution for the health of our community, the Village of Sugar Grove has limited public access to Village facilities moved to curb exposure to employees and residents.

At both Village Hall and the Public Works facility, residents and customers may conduct Village business over the phone or through electronic means, however, interior doors remain locked and with phones inside vestibules to allow customers to call for assistance.

For Village Hall, call 630-391-7200.

For Public Works, call 630-391-7230.

For Community Development, call 630-391-7220.

Incoming paperwork received from customers in the vestibules at Village Hall and Public Works/Community Development will now be held for 24 hours before processing to limit the spread of COVID-19.

The Village has taken other precautions to help reduce the exposure to our employees, and potentially our residents, to ensure the continuation of services across departments.

These precautionary measures are not due to any known exposure to COVID-19 at our facilities; they were implemented to eliminate unnecessary risk to the public and staff.

Please be assured that our Police Department remains staffed and ready to protect the community. Residents should not hesitate to call 911 if there is an emergency.

Precautions

There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Practice social distancing.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
