2020 11 18 Tier 3 Mitigation

With a new wave of COVID-19 surging across the state of Illinois and the nation, the state is committed to listening to public health experts and following the science to keep people safe. Tier 3 builds on the Resurgence Mitigation Plan first released in July to suppress the spread of the virus and ensure our hospitals do not become overrun. This new tier aims to limit gatherings and encourages people to stay home to the greatest extent possible while permitting some industries to remain open at significantly reduced capacities with proper safety measures in place. All detailed Phase 4 operational guidance remains in effect. Where Phase 4 guidance and Tier 3 Mitigations imply different standards, the more restrictive Tier 3 Mitigations will apply.

With COVID-19 spread now exponential in every region of the state, our statewide positivity rate at record highs, and hospitalizations already surpassing our Spring peak, all 11 regions will move into Tier 3 effective November 20, 2020, at 12:01 a.m. The new mitigation requirements to combat the surge of COVID-19 across Illinois can be found HERE.

A full list of mitigation measures pertaining to some businesses and industries may be found on the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) website.
