In an effort to improve public health and curb the chance for spreading the virus we ask Maple Park residents to mask up, practice social distancing and wash their hands.

We are also asking residents to assist Maple Park businesses (especially the bars and restaurants) in their efforts to prevent the spread of the virus by following these same practices when you patronize the businesses.

 

Thanks for your cooperation, stay strong and stay well!
