* Subsequent extensions were approved by the Lake County Board. On March 9, 2021 the Lake County Board further extended the declaration until the Governor of Illinois lifted the State's declaration of emergency but no later than April 13, 2021. The resolution also called for the continued operation of the Lake County Emergency Operations Plan and Lake County Health Department Emergency Operations Plan, pursuant to Illinois law, for at least 14 days after the termination of the declaration of emergency proclamation.
