As COVID-19 cases continue to rise we would like to take a moment to address it and related concerns here.
The Village of North Aurora is working alongside and consulting regularly with the Kane County Health Department regarding updates and best practices to keep safe and best prevent the spread of the virus. We are continuing to monitor the situation and how it may affect our community.
The Kane County Health Department has released several resources so residents can best educate themselves on both prevention measures and identification and diagnosis of COVID-19.
