Illinois COVID Info

Official Twitter Channel:
Link to State COVID Info:
Governor’s Plan to reopen:

Illinois has a 5-Phase (with a Bridge Phase between phases 4 and 5) reopening plan. All regions in Illinois are currently in the Bridge Phase between phases 4 and 5.

The Bridge Phase offers Illinois a bridge between the state's current Phase 4 restrictions and the "new normal" operations of Phase 5. This "Bridge Phase" will serve as a transition period with higher capacity limits and increased business operations, without prematurely embracing a reckless reopening before the majority of Illinoisans have been vaccinated. All regions of the state will move through the Bridge Phase, and ultimately to Phase 5, together.
