On the afternoon of March 20, 2020, Illinois governor J.B. Pritzker issued a “Stay at Home” order across the State of Illinois. This went into effect at 5:00 pm. On Saturday, March 21 and lasts through April 30.
The order allows for the continued operation of essential businesses only. Lawn and Landscape Services are essential services and permissible under Section 12. Paragraph H. of the Executive Order.
The current Executive Order remains in effect until April 30. On April 30 the current order will expire and we will continue to proceed with our services unless the Governor issues another order with changes.
We will provide updates as necessary. We would like to additionally thank the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association for their continued guidance and the work they have done working with the Governor’s office in this ongoing matter.
The Illinois Landscape Contractors Association: https://www.ilca.net/consumer/ will be providing an informative link on their website before the week is out for any of our clients to utilize if they require additional information as it pertains to our industry and the Covid-19 outbreak. Please also reference their video:
Here at Shelly’s Landscape, the health and well-being of our employees and our clients is foremost on our minds as we get set to start our season. With the guidance of the CDC and the ILCA, we want to assure you that we will be performing your services during regular business hours, practicing proper social distancing, providing our crews with hand sanitizer and whatever else is deemed necessary to perform our services with safety in mind.
Our office is minimally staffed at this time and we are trying to accomplish as much as we can via email and phone messaging. Our teams are all in place and we have no incidence of the virus to date and continue to take steps to ensure the health of everyone as we move forward.
With these topics in mind we are requesting the following of our clients as we service your properties. Please do not approach our employees while they work and if you are outside, please respect the recommended 6’ social distancing space. In addition, please ensure your children are respectful of these rules for the safety of all involved. If you have a specific request we would appreciate you sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may safely pass it along to our team leader without the need to directly interact with you, our valued client.
Since we work outdoors, in the fresh air and very rarely need to interact with you while we service your home there should be no concerns with us performing our duties. That being said, we respect all of your concerns. If you would prefer advance notice of our arrival or to delay your Spring cleanup do not hesitate contacting me to make those arrangements ahead of time. Please understand that we will do our very best to accommodate but your Spring cleanup must be completed by April 30th so we can then begin weekly service routes on schedule.
Please visit back here for any future updates and like our Facebook page for updates as well. Stay healthy and Stay safe!
