Barrington Village President Karen Darch is stressing the need for residents to practice appropriate social distancing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, even when outside.

"We continue to receive reports of inappropriate gatherings," Darch said in a statement Wednesday, "and while our police department is vigilant about issuing warnings, they cannot be in all places at all times. It's going to take all of us working together to 'self-police' and gently remind our family, friends and neighbors that it is best if we all simply stay home."


She added that everyone has had "to take a pause and reconnect to what is important to us, and that will give us a wonderful opportunity to build a 'new normal' that, I hope, will be reflective of the best we can be as Barringtonians and as Americans."
