Welcome to Will County, Illinois Website

Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant Will County Executive

I am honored to serve as your Will County Executive. As a lifelong resident of this great county, I have witnessed many changes as we have evolved from an ag-community to a major hub in the global distribution market.  I am dedicated to building upon this status but I am equally dedicated to maintaining the quality of life for the nearly 700,000 residents and thousands of businesses and organizations that call Will County home. 

Please explore our website which is filled with important information about services and departments within the County Executive office as well as connections to other county officials’ websites.

Will County is diverse, vibrant, and filled with hard-working people. We have room to grow and we look forward to a great future.

CDC Recommendations for people who traveled over Thanksgiving holiday

If you traveled over the Thanksgiving holiday, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) is offering some recommendations for those who were exposed or think they may have been exposed to COVID-19.

1. Stay home for 14 days after your last contact with a person who has COVID-19.

2. Stay away from others, especially people who are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

3. Watch for fever (100.4°F or higher), cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.

4. Consider getting tested for COVID-19. Even if you test negative for COVID-19 or feel healthy, you should still stay home (quarantine) for 14 days after your last contact with a person who has COVID-19. This is because symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus, and some infected people never have symptoms but are still contagious.

5. Do not travel until 14 days after your last possible exposure.

If you can’t completely stay away from others during the 14 days:

1. Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) away from other people.

2. Wear a mask that covers both the mouth and nose when you are around other people or animals, including pets (even at home).

3. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

4. Monitor yourself and household members for symptoms of COVID-19.

5. Get information about COVID-19 testing if you feel sick. Visit the Will County Health Department website for testing locations.

If you develop symptoms consistent with COVID-19 within 14 days of the event or celebration, such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath, or if you test positive for COVID-19, immediately notify the host and others who attended. They may need to inform other attendees about their possible exposure to the virus. Contact your healthcare provider and follow the CDC-recommended steps for what to do if you become sick, and follow the public health recommendations for community-related exposure.

If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, a public health worker may contact you to check on your health and ask you who you have been in contact with and where you’ve spent time in order to identify and provide support to people (contacts) who may have been infected. Your information will be confidential. Learn more about what to expect with contact tracing.
