Governor J.B. Pritzker announced stricter rules for several Illinois regions. That includes Region 7, which includes Will County, and Region 8, which includes DuPage County.

New Mitigations

Currently, the state follows a three-tiered plan when it comes to restrictions, with Regions 7 and 8 currently in Tier 1. With the governor’s announcement today, these regions move to Tier 2 mitigations, which includes a limit of six people per table at restaurants and bars, up to 10 people at meetings and social gatherings, and a limit of 25 people, or 25% capacity for organized recreational activities.

“The virus is winning the war right now,” said Pritzker. “The situation has worsened considerably in certain areas of the state. As a result, Regions 5, 7, and 8 – that’s southern Illinois and Chicago’s south suburbs and western suburbs, will join Region 1 in Tier 2 of COVID mitigations on Wednesday.”
