COVID Protocol Update

Alhamdulillah the COVID cases in our area have declined, however, transmission levels in District 204 remain high. Masks are still REQUIRED for ALL, regardless of vaccine status, when renting through the district.  Furthermore, MONTHLY self-certification will continue until transmission levels are significantly lower. The IDPH has amended its quarantine and isolation recommendations and the District and Al-Falah are following these new rules for quarantine and isolation.  (https://dph.illinois.gov/covid19/community-guidance/quarantine-guidance.html)  JazakAllahkhair again for all of your continued cooperation in abiding by our health and safety regulations!!
