Out of an abundance of caution in response to the growing spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the City of Washington will be closing access of City Hall and other city facilities to the general public starting Monday, March 16, 2020.

This action is being undertaken to support a policy of “social distancing” that will ultimately reduce burdens on healthcare facilities and first-responders should COVID-19 reach Tazewell County.

While physical access to City facilities are closed to the general public, City Hall will remain open for essential services. Payment of utility billing can be done online at https://www.ci.washington.il.us/egov/apps/payment/center.egov, or via a drop box at 301 Walnut Street.

Further information on COVID-19 can be found through the Centers for Disease Control website at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.
