the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) released their Phase 4 guidelines (available via this link) for reopening under Governor JB Pritzker’s “Restore Illinois” plan. The entire state is expected to move into Phase 4 (Revitalization) on Friday, June 26.
We believe additional guidelines may be forthcoming from DCEO or other state agencies as they develop, especially to clarify items not detailed in the current information, such as newly released golf operational restrictions to be effective June 26 (available via this link).
In Phase 4, public meetings and social events are limited to the lesser of 50 guests or 50% of overall room capacity. Capacity restrictions will be reassessed based on the latest science and public health metrics on an ongoing basis throughout Phase 4. Communities are able to resume in-person public meetings as long as gathering and social distancing restrictions are observed. As always, please consult with your legal counsel or retained attorney for legal advice prior to taking any formal or informal action.
