COVID-19 Response updates and information

Special Statement on Supporting Local Businesses

Many Galena Country businesses have had to totally change the way they operate during this pandemic. It is more important than ever to support these local establishments. Purchase a carry-out meal or delivery, buy gift cards to use on a later date, book future experiences, leave positive reviews on TripAdvisor, Google, and social media channels. Please note the important health updates from our local and state leaders listed below. Then, do what you can to stay healthy and support small businesses in our community.

COVID-19 Response updates and information

We are closely monitoring all updates from the CDC, the City of Galena, Jo Daviess County and the State of Illinois regarding the COVID-19 virus. The health and safety of our stakeholders and visitors is our highest priority.

As health officials learn more about the COVID-19 virus, the overall consensus is to be aware, be prepared, stay informed and practice healthy habits and preventable actions, including social distancing.
