The number of reported confirmed coronavirus cases in Will County increased by 42 from Monday to a total of 5,683 ...

Phase 3 is “Recovery: The rate of infection among those surveillance tested, the number of patients admitted to the hospital, and the number of patients needing ICU beds is stable or declining. Pritzker modified that phase of the plan which enabled restaurants and bars throughout Illinois to open their establishments for outdoor dining and the with the abundance of nice weather over the weekend a number of those establishments were able to open those areas to eager customers.

Phase 4 is “Revitalization: The rate of infection among those surveillance tested and the number of patients admitted to the hospital continues to decline. Gatherings of 50 people or fewer are allowed, restaurants and bars reopen, travel resumes, child care and schools reopen under guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health. Face coverings and social distancing are the norm. Pritzker said if trends keep going in the downward direction with the spreading of the virus, the state could move to this phase by the end of June.

Phase 5 is “Illinois Restored: With a vaccine or highly effective treatment widely available or the elimination of any new cases over a sustained period, the economy fully reopens with safety precautions continuing. Conventions, festivals and large events are permitted, and all businesses, schools and places of recreation can open with new safety guidance and procedures in place reflecting the lessons learned during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
