Illinois transitions to Phase 3 of reopening

Friday, May 29, 2020 6:57 PM | Anonymous
Illinois on May 29 moved to Phase 3 of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s five-phase Restore Illinois Plan, paving the way for an estimated 700,000 Illinoisans to return to work. Car-shoppers in Illinois no longer must arrange for an appointment to visit a showroom.
However, businesses must limit customers in their stores at one time to five customers per 1,000 square feet (excluding employees). The customer occupancy limit is calculated by taking the total square footage of the permanent structure the business occupies and dividing by 1,000. If the square footage of the facility is less than 1,000, the number of people is also less than five, based on percentage.
Pritzker’s guidelines came with a set of industry-specific toolkits. The guidelines and toolkits can be found online through the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity’s website.
"Social distancing, wearing face coverings, and capacity limits are just a few of the responsible actions we must all take in order to avoid a second wave of COVID-19 infections," said Dr. Ngozi Ezike, director of the Illinois Department of Public Health. "I applaud (businesses’) willingness to follow these guidelines and keep your communities safe. Please set the example as an anchor in your community. The actions we take today will shape the future of Illinois for years to come."
All businesses also must have a procedure in place for asking if any customer is currently exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms before allowing entrance, if necessary.
