Masks Required At City Buildings
Face masks are required at all City of Elgin indoor facilities, including The Edward Schock Centre of Elgin. All fitness members are required to wear a face mask in the facility including while engaged in exercise.
As of August 30, 2021, the state of Illinois has reinstated a mask mandate requiring residents 2 years and older to wear face coverings in indoor settings. While face coverings are not required outdoors, masks are encouraged in crowded outdoor settings like festivals and concerts, as well as for activities that require close contact with people who are not vaccinated.
The public is strongly encouraged to conduct business virtually, over the phone, email, or mail when possible. Residents can pay utility bills online, call 311, use the mail, or utilize the City’s dropbox (please no cash).
