Governor Announces A New Metrics-Based "Bridge" Step For State Reopening
Governor Pritzker introduced a "Bridge Phase" in the Restore Illinois Plan late last week that will increase capacity limitations on indoor and outdoor settings as the state continues to move towards fully reopening in Phase 5. The entire state is currently under Phase 4 guidelines.

The following highlights are changes between the current Phase 4 guidelines and the new Bridge Phase:

  • During Phase 4, indoor and outdoor standing areas are both set at 25% capacity.
  • The Bridge Phase increases indoor standing areas to 30% indoors and 50% outdoors.

Meetings, conventions, conferences
  • During Phase 4, venues with overall capacity under 200 people may operate at the lesser of 50 people or 50% capacity. Venues with overall capacity in excess of 200 people may operate at the lesser of 250 people or 25% capacity.
  • The Bridge Phase will allow all venue sizes to operate at the lesser of 1,000 people or 60% capacity.

Social Events
  • During Phase 4, venues hosting weddings and social events are limited to the lesser of 50 people or 50% capacity inside. Outdoor events are limited to the lesser of 100 people or 50% capacity.
  • The Bridge Phase will increase social event capacity to 250 people inside or 500 outdoors.

Fitness centers, shops, personal care, offices
  • During Phase 4, offices, fitness centers, and shops can operate at 50% capacity.
  • The Bridge Phase increases operational capacity to 60%.

Festivals and general admission outdoor spectator events
  • During Phase 4, 15 people are permitted per 1,000 sq. ft. for festivals and outdoor events.
  • The Bridge Phase expands the capacity for festivals and outdoor events to 30 people per 1,000 sq. ft.
