Gov. J.B. Pritzker is pleading with Illinois residents to just “hang in there” and be vigilant in the remaining months before a COVID-19 vaccine arrives.
Illinois’ Tier 3 mitigations take effect at midnight and are in effect for at least two weeks. In that time, the state will track the positivity rates and hospital capacity metrics in regions over a 14-day monitoring period to determine if mitigations can be relaxed, if additional mitigations are required, or if current mitigation should remain in place. The new restrictions affect the personal care, fitness, manufacturing, retail, hotel, bar and restaurant, recreation, business, and recreation sectors.
