Champaign-Urbana knows how to do Veterans Day. Veterans all around Central Illinois will be recognized in ceremonies and parades. But this year is a bit different because Veterans Day falls on a Sunday. And that means it is “observed” on Monday, creating a few wrinkles regarding our regular routine.
So, for our purposes, here’s a look at what is open, closed, and otherwise for Veterans Day (Monday) 2018:
OPEN: Including Champaign Unit 4, which usually gives students the day off when Veterans Day has falls on a weekday.
Government offices: Federal, state, and county administrative offices are closed. City of Urbana as well as City of Champaign offices are closed.
University of Illinois: In session.
Postal service: All post offices will be closed.
Courts: Federal, state and county closed.
Banks: Some are open; be sure to call ahead.
U.S. Stock Exchange: Open.
Libraries: OPEN: Champaign Public Library, Tolono Public Library, Mahomet Public Library, Urbana Free Library, Rantoul Public Library. When in doubt, call.
Museums: If they operate Mondays with regular hours, they are open.
Transit: CUMTD will operate on regular weekday schedules.
