The brand-new limitations, which will work Wednesday, are more stringent than ones being enforced in Region 4, or the Metro East area of Illinois along the Missouri border. They do not apply to schools.
Establishments serving food and alcohol can not serve clients inside your home, and all outdoor consumption needs to end at 11 p.m. Patrons should be served at tables positioned six feet apart, in observation of social distancing guidelines. Bookings will be needed.
Employees can not enable consumers to put together inside or outside while waiting on a table, alcoholic beverages or to leave. Bars should get rid of stools to discourage customers from congregating.
Other rules consist of limiting gatherings to 25 people, or one quarter of an areas capacity. Party buses will be prohibited and gambling establishments and other video gaming establishments should close at 11 p.m
. According to a news release, the Department of Public Health “continues to keep track of each area in the state for a number of key indicators to determine early, but considerable boosts of COVID-19 transmission in Illinois, possibly signifying resurgence.” Those consist of an increasing COVID-19 case count while health center capacity simultaneously drops.
If, over a two-week duration, the infection positivity rate drops to 6.5 percent or listed below, both regions 4 and 7 can reopen to the degree allowed under the Restore Illinois Plan.
In Region 4 last week, the governor revealed mitigation efforts requiring bars and dining establishments to close at 11 p.m. and limiting seating in those establishments to six individuals per table. Bars are being instructed to seat people just at tables and to get rid of bar stools to prevent collecting around the bar.
While some of the restrictions were the very same in both regions, indoor service for customers was not yet forbidden under the rules in Region 4.
