Restore Illinois Mitigation Plan

 

On Friday, January 15, 2021 Governor Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Public Health released a new update on the Illinois mitigations plan. 

 

Back on November 20, 2020, all 11 regions in Illinois were moved into Tier 3 mitigations leaving many of our restaurant/bar doors closed temporarily, unless they offered pickup or delivery. Empty hotels, small gatherings and many other restrictions. 

 

With some of the regions now beginning to make progress, Governor Pritzker has announced that regions meeting specific COVID related metrics will be able to move out of Tier 3 restrictive tier mitigations. 

 

Here is a list of the our six counties in our serviece area and the current guidelines they must follow:

 

Bureau County, Grundy County, Livingston County, LaSalle County, and Putnam County are all in Tier 1 Mitigations.
