Coronavirus Mask Laws in Winnetka & the North Shore

 

Rules regarding mask wearing while doing shopping and other errands are changing daily. If you’re visiting multiple locations, it’s best to keep a supply of masks in your car just in case.

 

Here’s what we know about regulations regarding masks in the North Shore while outside.

 

Villages that now require masks to be worn (as of April 23, 2020):

 

Glenview

Highland Park

Morton Grove

Niles

Skokie

Wilmette

 

Winnetka and Glencoe are encouraging all residents to wear masks but have not passed laws to do so.

 

Individuals may be turned away if not complying with the law (each business has this option.)

 

Face coverings are not required when outside walking, running, biking, or other physical activities. You are not required to wear one while in your personal car, house, or yard.

 

But how to get these masks? Online sites of medical style masks (not N-95) show delivery in late May to June. However, there are still many ways to secure a mask.

 

I’ve sewn several at home using this video which is short and to-the-point. The instructor shows using three layers but I used just two.

Sites to buy masks online:

 

FRVLove - masks with your favorite dog or cat

 

Etsy - has many different styles and designs

The list of villages that require masks will certainly grow in the future - don't be caught without a mask!

Good morning Margaret. Seems like we will be in the shelter in place phase for another month here in Illinois. Better safe than sorry! Enjoy your day!
