Algonquin is temporarily suspending programs starting Wednesday because of the COVID-19 outbreak recommendations from local, state and federal health officials.
The suspension affects all recreation programs and includes the full facility closure of Historic Village Hall, 2 S. Main St., according to a news release.
“While the village has no confirmed COVID-19 cases, we are exercising an abundance of caution to maintain the health and safety of our community,” according to the release. “All activities, rentals and events are canceled until further notice. Closures and cancellations will be reassessed on a daily basis and communicated to the public.”
The Ganek Municipal Center, 2200 Harnish Drive, which serves as the current Village Hall, remains open to the public, and all municipal services still are being offered.
Those who already have registered for programs and rental parties who have reserved facility space at the Historic Village Hall will be contacted directly to arrange for refunds.
“As the situation remains very dynamic, we will continue to closely monitor the local, state and national responses and will follow the recommendations put forth by these agencies,” the village said.
