We reported last week on a variety of new mitigation measures imposed by the State of Illinois on certain regions in the state. Today, the State announced new mitigation measures for Regions 4 (Metro East) and 10 (Suburban Cook County. These measures include bans on indoor dining and indoor bar service, and restrictions on meetings, events, and gatherings to 25 people. These new restrictions go into effect on Wednesday, October 28th.  You can read the tier 1 restrictions here

In addition, the State imposed a second tier of restrictions on Region 1 (Northcentral and Northwest Illinois, including Rockford) last week. The previous ban on indoor dining and bar service remains in place, but outdoor table seating is now restricted to 6 people and meetings, events, and gatherings are restricted to 10 people. There are also new restrictions on organized recreational activities. These tier 2 restrictions went into effect on October 25th. You can read the new tier 2 restrictions here.
