Restore Illinois Graphic

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) announced that Region 10 (suburban Cook County) has advanced from Tier 1 COVID-19 resurgence mitigations to Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan, effective immediately. See the announcement here.

An overview of Phase 4 guidelines can be found on the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity website here.

Phase 4 Guidelines include the following:

Restaurants and Bars

  • Indoor dining and drinking now permitted for parties of up to 10 people
  • Seated areas should be arranged so that tables allow for 6 feet between parties; impermeable barriers may be installed between booths that are less than 6 feet apart

Retail and Service Counter

  • Continue capacity limit of no more than 50% occupancy

Personal Care

  • Continue capacity limit of no more than 50% occupancy

Indoor/Outdoor Recreation

  • Reopening select indoor recreation facilities (e.g., bowling alleys, skating rinks); indoor playgrounds and trampoline parks should remain closed
  • Indoor recreation to operate at lesser of 50 customers or 50% of facility capacity

Meetings and Social Events

  • Limit to the lesser of 50 people or 50% of room capacity
  • Multiple groups may meet in the same facility if they are socially distanced and in separate rooms


To prepare businesses and employers to implement new and updated safety guidelines in Phase 4, the State of Illinois developed this business toolkit with signage, posters, and other resources to ensure business and activities are conducted in accordance with the latest public health recommendations. 


Restore Illinois Phases

Metrics for Moving from Tier 1 to Phase 4

  • Test positivity rate ≤ 6.5% for three consecutive days (7-day average); and
  • Staffed ICU bed availability ≥ 20% for three consecutive days (7-day average); and
  • No sustained increase in COVID patients in hospital (7-day average for 7 of 10 days)

IDPH will continue to track the positivity rate in Region 10 to determine if mitigations can be relaxed, if additional mitigations are required, or if current mitigations should remain in place.
