Message From Mayor Caiafa - Friday 3/20/20

Good Afternoon, Schiller Park Residents and Businesses. This is Mayor Nick Caiafa with an important message. 

As you may know, the Governor has issued a “stay at home” order, taking effect throughout Illinois tomorrow, Saturday, at 5:00 pm. The order requires all Illinois residents to stay in their homes as a measure to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Because we want the best for our community, we ask that you abide by the Governor’s order.

I want to first assure you that the dedicated Village administration and staff continue to operate, and to provide vital public services, including police, fire and administration. Please monitor our website at and our Facebook page for continued updates regarding the steps taken to deal with this situation by our Schiller Park administration, as well as federal and state agencies.

I encourage you to please use delivery services, including those Schiller Park restaurants listed on our website, but if you must go to the store for necessary provisions, please remember to be patient.

In addition to remaining at home, I urge you to utilize the precautions recommended by the Center for Disease Control to prevent transmission of the virus, including regular hand washing with soap for at least 20 seconds, keeping a distance of at least 6 feet from other people, avoiding crowds, and by all means, if you don’t feel well, please stay home and call your Doctor.. 

Additionally, if you have elderly or disabled neighbors or friends, and cannot reach them on their phone, please let us know and we will check on them.

In closing, rest assured that your health and safety remain our top priority. 

Please call the Village Hall with non-emergency questions, from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM Monday through Friday, and please continue to call 9-1-1 at any time with emergencies. Thank you.
