Restore Illinois

Phase 3 Guidelines for Reopening 

To prepare businesses and employers to implement the new safety guidelines and to bring many residents back to work, the State of Illinois has developed these business toolkits to ensure business and activities are conducted in accordance with the latest public health recommendations.

Read an introduction to Phase 3 from Dr. Ngozi Ezike, Director of Illinois Department of Public Health.

Our Phase 3 resources span 10 different industry categories. Each set of resources includes a common set of guidelines that are expected and encouraged among all employers and activity types, as well as workplace and program-specific guidelines. You will also be able to find graphic and text based posters for each specific industry.
