He urged the residents of Naperville to stay calm and follow the instructions given by the health officials. He assured the residents of the City that they were working on a plan to deliver the critical services. He added, “I am confident that we will get through this situation together and come out stronger as a community in the end.”

The city buildings have been closed by the administration for the public from March 18 until March 30. Some employees of the city buildings will carry on their work from home. The staff structuring has been modified by the Naperville administration. According to the announcement, the emergency respondents, the Naperville Fire Department and the Naperville Police Department, will carry on their services as before. The public is advised to call them immediately in any emergency situation.
