IDPH will continue to closely monitor test positivity, ICU bed availability, and the number of people in the hospital with COVID-19.  Should data show regions trending in the wrong direction, based on the established mitigation metrics, regions could once again find themselves in a higher tier with increased measures.

Information about mitigation and resurgence metrics can be found here: http://www.dph.illinois.gov/regionmetrics?regionID=1

Residents are asked to still wear masks when in public and be socially distant (6 feet) whenever possible.

The Governor’s Order requires everyone over the age of 2 and able to medically tolerate a face covering, to cover their nose and mouth “when in a public place and unable to maintain a six-foot social distance. Face coverings are required in public indoor spaces such as stores."

Individuals with a medical condition that precludes them from wearing a face covering will be exempt.

If unable to purchase face coverings, you can make them at home. https://www.cdc.gov/…/prevent…/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html
