Phase 4 Guidelines

The City of Highland Park is committed to providing consistent communication to our local business community and all residents as the Northeast Region of the state moves into Phase 4 of Restore Illinois. Phase 4 further relaxes restrictions while retaining strict social distancing strategies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Those social distancing strategies include wearing face coverings in public and maintaining a distance of six feet from others. 

The City will continue to update this page with essential information as it becomes available.
