Joliet City Hall will reopen to the public on Monday with several COVID-19 restrictions in place.
City Hall has been closed to the public since March 20, although some employees have continued to work there and City Council meetings have been held there.
The city announced Thursday in a news release that City Hall will open with restrictions, including requirements that those who come wear masks, have their temperatures taken, and answer "a few brief screening questions."
"Visitors will be escorted by city staff to their destination throughout City Hall," the release said.
The number of people allowed into City Hall will be limited to maintain social distancing.
The main entrance facing Des Plaines Street will be the only entrance available.
Special hours for the elderly and immune compromised have been set for 8 to 9 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The Customer Service department will be available without appointment for payments and real estate transactions. Appointments must be made directly with the department being visited for other business.
City employees will practice social distancing and wear masks when unable to keep appropriate social distances, the release said.
Visitors are instructed not to congregate in the hallways. Floors will be marked to designate required distances.
The city also announced that the City Council will resume pre-council workshop meetings on Mondays and full committee meeting schedules. The city, however, will continue the practice of barring the public from attending those meetings while allowing public comment by phone or by email.
