Dear Frankfort Chamber members,
Gov. JB Pritzker unveiled his new plan today to reopen Illinois! The five-phased plan will reopen our state, guided by health metrics and with distinct business, education, and recreation activities characterizing each phase.
Illinois started in Phase 1, and remained there until April 30. More than six weeks into the stay-at-home order, Illinois is currently in Phase 2, with garden centers and nurseries now open, and non-essential retail open for pickup and delivery. Golf, boating, and fishing are allowed with strict rules.
To get to Phase 3, officials said infection rates, hospitalizations and demand for ICU beds must be stable or declining. If that occurs, manufacturing, offices, hair salons and all retail can open. Additionally, all gatherings of 10 people or less, not just essential ones, will be allowed.
"The earliest that a region can move to phase three is May 29," Pritzker said.
To view the full Restore Illinois Plan,
We will continue to keep you apprised of the latest developments. Stay safe!
