COVID-19 Guidelines

In following the Illinois Department of Health guidance for reopening public spaces during the COVID-19 pandemic, face coverings are required for all visitors to the History Center and Stacy's Corners Store. Social distancing measures are in place. 

At Stacy's Corners Store, you will see signage instructing you to leave your purchases on the counter inside the store, then go out to the lobby to pay through the store window.

Hand sanitizer is available for use, and shared surfaces are frequently cleaned throughout the day. Disposable masks are available for those who need them.

For the sake of other visitors to GEHS, our staff and volunteers, we ask that you please stay home if you or a member of your household are currently ill, experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, if you are running a fever or have recently been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Right now, Stacy's Corners Store is open limited hours for walk-ins, by appointment, for contactless pickup, free local delivery, or you can stop in if staff is at the History Center (usually 10 - 3, Tuesday thru Friday).

If the State continues to move forward in Phase 4 and infection rates stay low, we hope to re-open the History Center for rentals and programs in September. Events will be limited to a capacity of 50 and chairs will be spaced for social distancing.

Stacy's Tavern Museum will likely be closed until Phase 5. But  yes, the grounds are open. Feel free to walk around outside the museum. Ward Plaza (corner of Geneva Rd., Main St. and St. Charles) has nice benches for sitting outdoors.

Stay tuned for more information! Thanks!
