Under the new mitigation measures, all meetings, social events and gatherings are to be limited to 25 people or 25% of the overall room capacity indoors.

“Our team continues to work hard to conduct business in the City, as well as be accessible to the public while things rapidly change under the COVID-19 pandemic. Most municipalities only provide a single platform to view public meetings. We provide multiple platforms for accessibility and transparency. The City of Kankakee will continue to follow all public health updates to be in compliance and adjust accordingly,” said Mayor Wells-Armstrong.
