Phase 5 Guidelines for Illinois Reopening
The governor has released guidelines for Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois plan, which will go into effect on June 11 and marks a full reopening of all businesses and activities.
This guidance will mean businesses, large-scale events, conventions, amusement parks and seated-spectator venues, among others, will be able to operate at full capacity for the first time since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The state is also lifting the outdoor mask requirement in schools in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
More information about the Phase 5 recommended public health practices is available on the Illinois Department of Public Health website.
