Region 10 (Cook County) Transitions to Phase 4 of Restore Illinois Plan

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) today announced Region 10, suburban Cook County, has moved from Tier 1 to Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan. Additional information about which tier and phase regions are in can be found at the top of the IDPH website homepage.  

A Phase 4 Guidelines Overview can be found on the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity website.

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 which 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

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.
