    IDHHC Announcement

    Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Illinois Deaf and Hard of Hearing Commission will not be open to the public.  The Governor has instructed all state agencies to temporarily reduce activities and workforce to core mission functions and essential operations.  IDHHC staff will be working remotely and continue to monitor emails and calls during this time.

    Shipments of Clear Face Shields Suspended

    The Central Management Services has recommended all state agencies to employ state employees remotely to the greatest extent possible in adherence to the Illinois Governor’s November 20, 2020 Tier 3 Mitigations currently in effect. As a result, the Illinois Deaf and Hard of Hearing Commission has suspended shipping the clear face shields until further notice.


    Once IDHHC has returned to the office under the Illinois Department of Public Health’s recommended health and safety guidelines, IDHHC will resume shipping the clear face shields to registered individuals.


    IDHHC appreciates your patience during unprecedented times.
