Illinois Department of Public Health Releases Details on "Restore Illinois Phase 4" Guidelines

The Illinois Department of Public Health Monday afternoon released guidelines to move the state to the "Restore Illinois Phase 4" track this Friday, as part of treating the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

 

I-D-P-H tweeked several of the items previously released regarding recreation, restaurants, retail and offices.

 

Outdoor recreation facilities should limit group sizes to 50 customers, with multiple groups permitted if proper social distancing and group management is enforced. Capacity restrictions and group sizes will be reassessed based on the latest science and public health metrics on an ongoing basis throughout Phase 4, according to the state agency.

 

Guidance on restaurants and bars released Monday afternoon says seated area capacity of restaurants and bars should be determined by arranging seating to provide a minimum of six feet between tables or other designated patron service areas. Indoor dining can reopen with groups of 10 or less, with tables spaced 6-feet apart in seated areas and with standing areas at no more than 25% of capacity. Capacity restrictions will be reassessed based on the latest science and public health metrics on an ongoing basis throughout Phase 4.  

 

Retail establishments can operate with 50-percent of store capacity.

 

Non-essential offices can re-open with 50-percent of office capacity.
