Cook County issues stay-at-home advisory; Homewood closes village hall to the public

In light of the continued COVID-19 surge, Homewood officials announced on Thursday that village hall and the Public Works Municipal Center on Ashland Avenue will close to the public for the rest of the year. Officials said the pandemic situation would be reviewed in December and the decision would be re-evaluated.

Homewood officials noted that police, fire and public works services will remain unaffected by the closure . . .
