Restore Illinois: A Public Health Approach to Safely Reopen Our State

Restore Illinois: A Public Health Approach to Safely Reopen Our State

On May 5, 2020, Governor Pritzker announced his plan to reopen Illinois in five phases which is called "Restore Illinois." The plan divides Illinois into 4 defined regions, and establishes five phases to reopen Illinois, starting with Phase 1 (Rapid Spread) and concluding with Phase 5 (Illinois Restored).

According to the Governor, the entire State of Illinois is currently in Phase 2 (Flattening). By the end of the month, some regions may move to Phase 3 (Recovery) which would allow the reopening of manufacturing, offices, retail, salons, and other businesses with certain capacity and other safety precautions in place. Note that restaurants and bars would not be allowed to open for on-premises service until Phase 4 (Revitalization).
