The Naperville Park Board will resume holding in-person meetings July 9 and the Naperville District 203 School Board will do the same a week later.

Other elected bodies, however, are holding off on returning to live gatherings even though it is now allowed under the fourth phase of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s plan to reopen businesses and services in Illinois. Groups of up to 50 people can now be in the same room as long as precautions are in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Representatives for the Naperville City Council and the Naperville Library Board say there are no immediate plans to resume in-person meetings. The Indian Prairie District 204 School Board meeting scheduled for July 13 will be held virtually.

Since March, almost all elected boards have been conducting meetings online using video conferencing platforms because gatherings of more than 10 people were prohibited and required social distancing of at least six feet.
