Will County moves into Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan

Allows for larger groups for indoor dining and recreation facilities

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) announced that effective today Region 7, which includes Will County, is moving to Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan.

“This is positive news for our residents and our business owners, as well as a reflection of the commitment our residents are showing to stay vigilant in the fight against COVID-19,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “All of us are feeling ‘COVID fatigue’ and this move into Phase 4 will allow us to regain more of our normal activities.”

Bertino-Tarrant cautions the public to still observe the Three W’s – wear your mask, wash your hands, and watch your distance. The vaccine is being rolled out in a safe and measured process. Currently, those 65 and older are being contacted to schedule a vaccine.

“Beginning today, our local restaurants, bars, personal care and other locations can begin to accommodate more customers while still maintaining safety measures,” she said.

Phase 4 Guidelines include the following:
RESTAURANTS AND BARS
• Indoor dining and drinking now permitted for parties of up to 10 people
• Seated areas should be arranged so that tables allow for 6 feet between parties; impermeable barriers may be installed between booths which are less than 6 feet apart
RETAIL AND SERVICE COUNTER
• Continue capacity limit of no more than 50 percent occupancy
PERSONAL CARE
• Continue capacity limit of no more than 50 percent occupancy
INDOOR/OUTDOOR RECREATION
• Reopening select indoor recreation facilities (e.g., bowling alleys, skating rinks); indoor playgrounds and trampoline parks should remain closed
• Indoor recreation to operate 50 customers or 50 percent of facility capacity, whichever is less
MUSEUMS
• Capacity limit of no more than 25 percent occupancy
• Guided tours should be limited to 50 or fewer people per group
MEETINGS AND SOCIAL EVENTS
• Limit to the lesser of 50 people or 50 percent of room capacity
• Multiple groups may meet in the same facility if socially distanced and in separate rooms
IDPH will continue to closely monitor test positivity, ICU bed availability, and the number of people in the hospital with COVID-19 in the county. If data shows a region trending in the wrong direction, based on the established mitigation metrics, regions could once again find themselves in a higher tier with increased measures.
Additional information about which tier and phase regions are in can be found at the top of the IDPH website homepage. A Phase 4 Guidelines Overview can be found on the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity website.
