A Bridge to Normal
A BRIDGE TO NORMAL. Governor Pritzker announced revisions to the Restore Illinois plan that lay out the State's roadmap to lift most COVID-19 safety restrictions based on vaccination rates. The revised plan calls for:
Phase 4: Some increased capacity limits effective immediately (mostly for outdoor activities).
Bridge: After 70% of residents aged 65 and older have been received their first dose of the vaccine, capacity limits are further increased in indoor and outdoor settings.
Phase 5: After 50% of residents aged 16 and older have received their first dose of the vaccine, capacity limits are lifted. Wearing a mask in public and other measures will remain in effect.
The above steps include monitoring periods based on COVID-19 health metrics such as new cases and hospitalization.
