Aurora plans to reopen city hall and other offices at 8 a.m. Monday to the public with additional safety measures in place.

As the city transitions into Phase 4 of the Reopen Illinois Plan, the facilities will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The first hour of each day is reserved for senior citizens. Facilities will be closed to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays until further notice.


To prepare for the reopening, the city already has implemented several precautionary measures, including installing plexiglass sneeze guards at customer service areas; reconfiguring customer areas to accommodate the six feet for adequate social distancing; installing signs to guide social distancing and to display new capacity limits for specific areas; increasing the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting; and preparing city staff for the new procedures and precautions.

All city employees will be required to wear masks or face coverings and have their temperature taken at the beginning of each work shift.

Prior to entry, each visitor must have on a mask or face covering and complete a brief health assessment with a greeter, including having their temperature taken with a no-contact digital thermometer.
