Community Collaboration: May 15 Update on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Posted on May 15, 2020 at 4:29 PM

Our organizations continue to coordinate and share resources in addressing the present situation in our community. We also are looking ahead in our collaborative approach to developing plans that will allow us to safely and confidently reopen our community as we move through the phases of Restore Illinois.

Updates from Park Districts

Both the Glenview and Northbrook Park Districts report that the reopening of their golf facilities with COVID-19 restrictions has been safe and smooth. In Northbrook, Anetsberger Golf Course is open; in Glenview, the Glenview Park Golf Club is open, and the Glenview Prairie Club opened today for golf only (platform tennis remains closed at this time).

Both park districts have plans in place to open tennis and pickleball courts in the next week. Please check their websites (Northbrook and Glenview) for new guidelines on where to play and how to play safely.

Update From NorthShore University HealthSystem

NorthShore University HealthSystem reported a drop in the overall number of COVID-19-positive hospitalized patients, as well as a decrease in ICU patients and those on ventilators. However, the rate of positive COVID-19 tests, at just under 28% of those tested, is up slightly from last week.

As a reminder, if you or a family member show COVID-19 symptoms (listed on our website) you should:

  • Call 847-HEALTH9 (847-432-5849) and talk to a NorthShore clinical expert; or
  • Log onto NorthShoreConnect through the app on your mobile device or on the website (www.northshoreconnect.org/immediatecare).

Community Needs

The Northfield Township Food Pantry continues to see an increase in need. Their website includes information on how to apply for Food Pantry assistance, and how to make donations.

Good News Stories

If you follow any of us on our social media channels, you’ll get a healthy dose of stories that highlight the strength of our community and the boundless goodness of those who live and work here. We will share some of those stories here each week.
