Tighter Tier 3 COVID-19 Restrictions in Effect for All of Illinois

Pritzker Presser

Stricter Tier 3 COVID-19 mitigations are currently in effect for the entire State of Illinois. The mitigations are being re-evaluated every two weeks to see if they are reducing positivity rates in each of the State's health regions.

While current mitigations fall short of a mandated stay-at-home order, they impose tougher restrictions on the number of people allowed at a time in retail stores, personal care service businesses, health and fitness centers, and hotels. The mitigations also close casinos and theaters, and move all recreational sports outdoors with a 10-person limit. Outdoor dining, elective surgeries, and salon and spa services that allow for masks to be worn will be allowed to continue under Tier 3 mitigations.

Governor Pritzker is asking Illinoisans to stay at home as much as possible and to wear face coverings if they do need to interact in public. "This is not a stay-at-home order," Governor Pritzker said during his briefing this afternoon. "But the best way to avoid a stay-at-home order is to stay at home."
