The Village of Rockdale – Special Holiday Greetings: With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, please keep in mind that the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community is to celebrate with the members of your household. If, however you do plan to gather with others outside of your household, follow the recommendations below from the State of Illinois Department of Public Health on how to slow the spread of COVID-19. Please follow the three most important basic practices: Wear a mask or face covering. Practice physical distancing. Wash your hands for 20 seconds. Limit the size of gatherings  This holiday season, we must all continue to do our part to keep COVID-19 from spreading, including opting out of get-togethers with family and friends outside of our own households. Each Village of Rockdale Board member and myself, want our Residents to continue to prioritize keeping ourselves, our families, and our community safe. Sincerely, Rockdale Mayor Samuel Wyke
