On May 6, Governor Pritzker announced Illinois will love into the Bridge Phase of the Restore Illinois reopening plan beginning Friday, May 14 which is one step closer to removing nearly all remaining mitigations. The Bridge Phase allows for expanded capacity limits for businesses and gatherings before the state moves to a full reopening in Phase 5. Barring any significant reversals in key COVID-19 statewide indicators, Illinois could enter Phase 5 as soon as Friday, June 11. 

The Governor and Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) also announced an expansion of the COVID-19 vaccine administration plan to include
private doctors’ offices and small medical providers, which can now begin to order and administer COVID-19 vaccine directly to patients. It is important for Illinoisans to get a COVID-19 vaccine and to continue to follow CDC guidelines on masking and distancing.

As we continue towards herd immunity (80% of the population), it is important to remain vigilant in preventing the spread of COVID-19 by:

  • Getting vaccinated

  • Wearing a mask

  • Washing your hands

  • Watching your distance

State and regional data can be found on the IDPH website. Lake County data can be found on our Data Hub.

March 18, 2021 Update

Governor J.B. Pritzker announced a new phase to the Restore Illinois Plan. The “Bridge Phase” is between Phases 4 and 5, and is intended to allow Illinois health officials flexibility in relaxing some COVID-19 guidelines before fully entering Phase 5. Currently, the State of Illinois is in Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan.

To enter the Bridge Phase – which will increase capacity limits– 70% of seniors (aged 65+) must receive at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and health metrics (e.g., death rate, hospitalization rate, available ICU beds, etc.) must remain stable. As of March 18, 58% of seniors received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. The State will remain in the Bridge Phase for at least 28 days.

If health metrics remain stable or improve after 28 days and 50% of residents aged 16+ receive at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, the State will enter Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois. Phase 5 does not implement any capacity limits for any industry. As of March 18, 28% of residents aged 16+ received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Masks will continue to be required when social distancing isn’t available until the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces it’s safe to no longer wear masks.

Additionally, the Governor announced that all Illinoisans aged 16+ will become eligible to receive a vaccine on April 12. Please note, eligibility does not mean a vaccine will be available to all residents aged 16+ on April 12. Those residents must wait until their local health department allows them to make an appointment. More vulnerable populations will become eligible before April 12.

Finally, 4.3 million COVID-19 doses were administered to Illinoisans so far. Roughly 100,000 doses are administered per day at the 900 vaccination sites throughout the State. 1 in 4 adults in Illinois are vaccinated and Illinois is a leader in vaccination rates among large population states.

The Village of Lincolnshire encourages you to continue wearing your mask, washing your hands, watching your distance, and to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can make an appointment.
