More on the Restore Illinois framework:
Restore Illinois is about saving lives and livelihoods. This plan will guide the reopening of our state, using public health metrics and with distinct business, education, and recreation activities characterizing each phase. This five-phased plan recognizes that the economy will start growing again when consumers feel that it is safe to return to work, shop and dine out, and engage in social and recreational activities.
To facilitate a tailored emergency response to meet local health needs, the Restore Illinois framework has established 11 public health regions and implements mitigation based on local risk level. To address the rapid spread of COVID-19 in Illinois, new statewide Tier 3 mitigations were issued for all 11 regions. Regions will leave Tier 3 mitigations when the region achieves the metrics established by the Illinois Department of Public Health and a review of data from a 14-day monitoring period.

If sustained increases in health metrics are continually observed, further mitigations could be added and will be noted in the table below. Businesses within the region(s) under more restrictive mitigation measures are responsible for making adjustments to their operations in accordance with the posted mitigation measures.
