The Will County Board of Health meeting will be held in person at:
501 ELLA AVENUE

CONFERENCE ROOM 1005A / 1005B
Due to the sharp reduction in COVID-19 positive cases in Will County, the movement from substantial community transmission to low community transmission, the increase in ICU bed availability, and the lifting of the mask mandate by governor Pritzker, the board of health president has determined that meeting in person is both practical and prudent for all meetings of the will county board of health effective march 11, 2022.
