Important Update

A Note About Health & Safety 

Updated: March 12, 2020, 7:30 PM

St Tim’s Coffeehouse is committed to protecting the health and safety of our students, staff, faculty, and community who attend classes, concerts, and events in our facilities. We are closely monitoring the development of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation in Skokie and following guidance from both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Skokie and Illinois Departments of Public Health. 

What We’re Doing:

The risk for transmission in Skokie is still considered to be low, but we have formed an internal team that is charged with tracking the situation, evaluating risks, developing plans, and ensuring that we communicate effectively with all of our community. 

What You Can Do to Help:

Help our community by practicing everyday healthy and preventative behaviors that prevent the spread of germs: 

• Wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds • Refrain from touching your face with unwashed hands• Cover coughs and sneezes• Use hand sanitizer when soap or water is unavailable• Avoid contact with people who are sick• Stay at home when you are sick

We encourage those who feel unwell or who may have been exposed to stay home. 

In addition, Northshore University Health Systems Coronavirus Frequently Asked Questions page advises that there is no reason to routinely wear a face mask at this time. The best way to stay healthy is to wash your hands frequently, stay home if you are sick and avoid others who are sick. 

Residents who are sick and have either traveled to a country or area of the United States with sustained community spread of the virus or had close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 should call their healthcare provider. 

Individuals who are at high risk according to CDC guidelines, including older adults and those with chronic health conditions, should review and follow the advice offered by the CDC for high-risk individuals.

In the event of cancellations for concerts we will notify ticket holders prior to the start of the event by email and phone when available.

As this situation continues to evolve, we will closely follow guidance from our local health officials around the city and throughout the country. We will continue to rely on their recommendations and expertise to inform our decisions while maintaining the health and safety of our community to the best of our ability.
