Please be advised that pursuant to Cook County Circuit Court General Order 2019-01, the recent adverse weather conditions have caused some delays in the enforcement of residential Forcible Entry and Detainer Orders for Possession (Evictions). Pursuant to the Court Order, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office is prohibited from carrying out residential evictions when the outside temperature is 15 degrees Fahrenheit or colder on the actual date of the eviction, or whenever regardless of the outside temperature, extreme weather conditions endanger the health and welfare of those to be evicted. Please keep in mind that this delay may cause your Order for Possession to expire prior to being executed by the Cook County Sheriff’s Office. Please review and comply with 735 ILCS 5/9-117 to ensure that all Orders of Possession remain enforceable.
