Governor JB Pritzker has released guidelines tailored to specific industries such as restaurants, retail and health and fitness centers as Illinois prepares to enter Phase 3 of the governor’s reopening plan Friday.
We just want to be open, make sure the public safety of our customers and our team members are always being taken care of, and we’re just looking forward to giving our customers the great experience they expect here in Chicago, the culinary capital in the United States,” said Sam Toia, president and CEO of the Illinois Restaurant Association.
Bars and Restaurants Can Open for Outdoor Seating, All State Parks to Open
Building on a robust, statewide effort to ensure Illinois can safely reopen and following the data, science, and guidance from public health experts and stakeholders across the state, Governor Pritzker announced updates to Phase 3 of the state’s Restore Illinois plan.
Illinois will permit the re-opening of indoor and outdoor tennis facilities with Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) safety precautions and capacity limits.
The state will be providing guidance on how other outdoor recreational businesses, such as driving ranges, outdoor shooting ranges, and paintball courses can safely open their doors in Phase 3.
