BATAVIA, Ill. – Community members who want regular updates on available state resources for the COVID-19 pandemic can sign up for state Rep. Karina Villa’s e-newsletter. Villa, D-West Chicago, wants to ensure residents are up-to-date on the ever-growing pandemic.

“Every day, we learn more information about what the coronavirus is doing to our communities and state, but it is difficult to sort through and understand everything,” said Villa. “My office is collecting the different resources available, and helping residents understand what they need to know to combat this pandemic.”

Villa’s number one priority is making sure that community members are receiving fact-based and accurate information about the COVID-19 emergency, which is why she launched her e-newsletter for residents. Her office is consolidating information it receives from a variety of different organizations, such as the administration, non-profits and the business community, and distributing it to community members in an easy-to-read format.

“It is essential that residents are informed about what is happening in the world right now,” said Villa. “If anyone has questions or concerns about the pandemic or how it affects you, please do not hesitate to contact my office.”

Anyone who is interested in signing up can visit or email Villa’s office at Her newsletter is in English and Spanish, and is sent on Tuesday and Thursday each week.
