Evanston officials announced this noon that the Civic Center will be closed to the public until further notice beginning at 5 p.m. today.

The shutdown is part of the ongoing effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 infections.

The city is suggesting resident call the 311 center at 847-448-4311 or visit the city’s website for questions, services and information.
