NAPERVILLE, Ill. — New COVID-19 mitigation measures go into effect Wednesday in several suburban counties.

The tighter mitigations aren’t much different then what the rest of the state is under right now, with the goal of attempting to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Starting Wednesday in Kankakee, Will, DuPage and Kane counties, groups are limited to 10 people and a cap of six people seated together at a bar or restaurant. No indoor dining allowed.

The new mitigations come into place as the state sets a record for daily COVID cases, hitting more than 12,000 new and probable cases Tuesday. Hospitalizations and deaths are also on the rise.
