Restore Illinois

A Public Approach to Safely Reopening
Our State

Restore Illinois is about saving lives and livelihoods.

This five-phased plan will reopen our state, guided by health metrics and with distinct business, education, and recreation activities characterizing each phase. This is an initial framework that will likely be updated as research and science develop and as the potential for treatments or vaccines is realized. The Restore Illinois 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.

Under the Restore Illinois framework, certain businesses and activities are allowed to resume in Phase 3 and Phase 4 with IDPH-approved safety guidance in place.

For the purposes of this site, we will be providing guidelines and tools for various industries based on which phase of the plan the state is currently in.
