May 20, 2020 – Governor Pritzker has announced an expansion on phase three of the Restore Illinois plan.
This expansion would allow for bars and restaurants to resume their operations earlier and open for outdoor seating. Some restrictions will be put in place for these locations including: tables six feet apart and away from sidewalks, masks and distancing measures for staff and other precautions.
The state’s plan is likely to enter phase three on May 29th.
At this time, this does not allow for video gaming to resume operations, but certainly is a step in the right direction.
