CHICAGO (CBS) —  Outside of Cook County, many mayors have been pushing back against the governor’s stay-at-home orders.

CBS 2’s Chris Tye reports from Downers Grove where that push back is growing.

Next week’s move to Phase 3 is a state-wide green light. But moving forward, some regions of Illinois will advance faster than others based on health numbers.

In many counties, like DuPage, they’re concerned being lumped into the same region that includes Cook County will bring a slower return to normal.

“We are as skinny as you can go,” said Larry Boik. “We are down to one person per shift, every day.”

“Skinny” describes the profit margins, foot traffic and staffing levels for most suburban businesses relying on foot traffic. Boik’s Great Harvest Bread Company in Downers Grove is located in DuPage County. Mayors there are touting a successful flattening of the curve.
