Recyclepalooza 2020 canceled. In an announcement on Saturday, Flossmooor officials announced two more event cancellations. “We regret to inform the community that due to the coronavirus pandemic and the current stay-at-home order, the village of Flossmoor has decided to postpone our annual New Resident Event and Recyclepalooza. It’s a difficult but necessary decision. However, we are optimistic that both events will be rescheduled in the near future.” Recyclepalooza is a communitywide recycling event that helps residents properly dispose of difficult items, like electronics, bicycles and TVs.

Senior shopping service. The Village of Homewood and St. Joseph’s Athletic Association are collaborating on a senior shopping service. Since the shelter-in-place has been implemented, volunteers from this organization have offered to go grocery shopping for Homewood senior citizens. This service is being coordinated by the Homewood Events Manager Allisa Opyd. Send an email with questions or orders [email protected] or call 847-814-1862. Reimbursement for the items purchased will be done at the time of delivery to the volunteer. A check or cash is accepted; however, change may not be possible. All volunteers have been vetted by the village of Homewood or the Diocese of Chicago.

The peak is not the end. Gov. J.B. Pritzker has noted in recent days the encouraging slowdown in the rate of new COVID-19 infections. He has also cautioned that reaching the peak will not mean a quick return to normal. Pritzker said he bases policy on advice from scientists and doctors who know about how virus infections work in a population. He has indicated the return to normal activity will depend on three elements reaching appropriate levels: testing, contact tracing and treatment.
