There have been more burning restrictions added by Lake county. Please see the link here for the complete information. https://www.lakecountyil.gov/4438/Open-Burning-in-Unincorporated-Lake-Coun
From the link above: “The Lake County Board enacted an emergency ordinance that temporarily bans open burning in unincorporated Lake County through June 10, 2020. During this time, open burning is prohibited in the unincorporated areas.
Recreational fires that are no larger than 3’ x 3’ x 3’ used for warming, cooking, and other recreational purposes are not included in this ban. The temporary ban is in addition to existing prohibitions which include burning garbage, refuse, or construction materials. The length of the temporary ban is subject to extension by the Lake County Board in response to developing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
Exposure to smoke from open burning can increase serious health consequences during the COVID-19 pandemic in both people who have existing respiratory conditions and those who don’t. People who contract COVID-19 are more likely to develop more severe symptoms and/or serious complications due to smoke exposure.
The temporary ban also reduces the risk of the uncontrolled spread of fire, which could impact fire departments and other first responders at a time when their resources are needed to assist with the community COVID-19 response operations.”
