CALUMET CITY — Mayor Thaddeus Jones on Friday announced the closure to the public of City Hall and all non-essential city offices until further notice because of the current spike in COVID-19 cases.

"The situation in Illinois has not gotten better," Jones said in a statement. "Infection rates have continued to rise since Thanksgiving and show little sign of decreasing heading into the new year."

Jones also said all city council meetings will be conducted virtually until further notice.
