On Saturday, January 23, Region 10 of the State of Illinois – which includes Niles and Suburban Cook County – transitioned to less-restrictive Tier 1 mitigations. This transition will impact some Village operations. At the Niles Senior Center, virtual programming will continue the week of January 26 and staff will be available by appointment only. The Senior Center will then reintroduce in-person programming, with capacity limits, on Monday, February 1. The Niles Family Fitness Center remains open, with increases to capacity. Beginning Sunday, January 24, group exercise classes at the Niles Family Fitness Center will be increased to a maximum of 20 per class with social distancing of 12 feet; Aquacize classes will increase to a maximum of 14 participants; and the fitness area capacity will be 50% or 50 people. The Niles Teen Center will remain closed to in-person events at this time and will continue to provide virtual programming and activities. As local school districts ease up restrictions and move towards full student participation, the Teen Center will follow suit and continue to prepare for a safe and healthy reopening as its facility space allows.
The rest of the Village of Niles’ operations remain unchanged. Facilities are open to the public, with employees encouraged to work remotely when possible. Many services are available online.
Information about Tier 1 restrictions, including newly allowed indoor dining, can be found online at https://www.dph.illinois.gov/regionmetrics. The Village’s website will be kept up to date with the latest information about available services at www.vniles.com/covid-19.
