As of today, Chicago has reached Phase 5 and is officially open! For the first time in more than a year, gatherings of all sizes are allowed and capacity limits for businesses have been dropped. This is a truly humbling moment—one we have all been working towards since the state locked down last March.

Thank you to the first responders and health care workers who kept our community safe. Thank you to the essential workers who kept our city running. Thank you to all the community groups and local advocates who kept our neighborhood fed. Thank you to the teachers and the parents, and those who had to become both during the lockdown. Thank you to all the residents of the 50th Ward for your strength and commitment during the worst public health crisis of our generation.

Even in Phase 5, masks will still be required in certain public spaces, such as public transit, airports, schools and hospitals. Unvaccinated people should continue to wear masks and practice social distancing in crowded indoor and outdoor spaces. Visit www.chicago.gov/vaccinefinder to find a vaccine near you.

Fill out the forms at bit.ly/BlockParty2021 then submit them to my office to schedule your party!

New this year, there will be safety recommendations due to the pandemic. Residents applying for the block party permit must volunteer as a COVID Captain to help communicate the safety protocols and must sign a COVID-19 safety affirmation form. No Jumping Jacks or Bouncy Houses will be permitted.

Following guidance from the CDC and the State of Illinois, the City of Chicago will no longer require masks for fully vaccinated people in most settings. If you are not fully vaccinated, you need to continue to wear your mask in all indoor settings. As a reminder, fully vaccinated means two weeks after your second vaccine dose if you got Pfizer or Moderna, or two weeks after your single dose if you got Johnson & Johnson.

Chicago will align with federal and state guidance and will require everyone to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status, in health care settings, schools, correctional/congregate settings, and on public transportation.

Masks, social distancing, and hand washing have been the best tools to combat COVID-19, so the City continues to strongly advise—though not require—masking policies for all indoor settings in Chicago until capacity restrictions are lifted.

Any way we could get a "dog beach" in Rogers Park? Or even a dog park would be awesome. Would be a great draw to the neighborhood :)
Where can I find the street sweeping schedule? Sweeparound.us is not longer a functional website, and the link on the City website (https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/depts/streets/provdrs/streets_san/svcs/street_sweeping.html) is gone
Hello Alderman Debra Silverstein, 50th Ward, I would like to bring to your attention piles of garbage being accumulated in the alley behind the block of 2400 W Sherwin. Normally, the private waste companies access the trash bins via the access entry point located behind Morelia Supermarket and Extra Value Liquor. However, it appears the all the snow behind those businesses was pushed north which created a pile of snow. I feel that this needs to be addressed sooner than later, and waiting for the snow to melt is not an option at this point. I’m not an expert but trash piled this high will attract more rodents. Please see pictures.
Hello please help me I haven't received any mail over a week although receiving notice from the post every day my street is N christiana ave 60659
Hi Alderman Alderman Debra Silverstein, 50th Ward, can you please look into why the block of 2400 W Sherwin has not been plowed yet? I check the City’s plow tracker and it said a plow came through at 3:45am today. Here are some pictures. Thank you
Hi! Mail delivery in our area has become erratic . I know that there is not enough personnel and they are overwhelmed. We did not receive any mail this past week. Some areas of the city have been much more negatively affected. Not being able to reach the post office, I could not ask if it was possible for us to pick up our mail. Of course, it might not even be completely sorted. Do you have any input or suggestions? Just to clarify, I understand that the people working for the post office have been affected also by Covid! Difficult and frustrating situation for all. By the way, our mailman is wonderful! I hope he is healthy!
Do you have the new calendar for the recycling collection? I couldn't find anything listed on your website. Thanks.
Does anyone answer emails at the office anymore? Are there still Monday afternoon opportunities to discuss issues with Alderman Silverstein? I used to get prompt email responses, but I have not received a response to my last two emails.
It's better to give than receive. You can still donate a new, unwrapped toy at the same 18 parks sites where toys will be distributed on Sat., Dec. 19 from 10 am to 12 pm. For details, visit www.chicagoparkdistrict.com/toy-drive. #ChiParksToyDrive 🎁 Warren Park, 6601 N. Western Ave. is a Winter Wonderland Express, toy distribution location. [While supplies last]
