As the corona virus situation is changing weekly we invite you to check out The CDC and MSN's websites. When we at the Legion have posted data from the internet, it seems to become obsolete very quickly.
MSN Coronavirus (COVID-19) (msn.com) provides data and updates from many sources which may give you better information than we can provide here and stay timely. There are many other good sources on the web as well, including the CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (cdc.gov)
Our goal here is to give our Legion membership starting points for Covid-19 updates. As always, if you exhibit symptoms, please contact your physician.
As of February 28, 2022, all Elmhurst American Legion programs returned to normal operations. We encourage you to wear a mask indoors at the Post if you so desire. We will continue to monitor state and national developments on any recent changes regarding the virus.
