Gov. Pritzker Says Phase 5 Not Coming Any Time Soon

The Illinois Department of Public Health moved a number of regions into less restrictive tiers of mitigations on Monday. 


Two regions, three and five, are now back to Phase Four, meaning restaurants and bars are open, some youth sports can play games and gyms are operating again. But a full move into Phase Five means widespread distribution of a vaccine or a readily available treatment for COVID-19. Governor JB Pritzker says the state isn’t moving to Phase Five anytime soon.



On average 22,000 people a day in Illinois are getting vaccinated and the state says there are 3.2 million people in the current Phase 1b of the vaccination rollout. As of Monday, the state reports that just under a half a million people have been vaccinated.
