Chicago moves to Tier 2 in state coronavirus plan

DeKalb has been placed under Tier 3 mitigation restrictions since October. The rules, put into an effect on November 20 to combat a surge in COVID-19 cases, prohibit all indoor dining and drinking at bars and restaurants and limit the number of people who can be inside other businesses at one time. Cultural institutions like museums can reopen at limited capacity, along with casinos.

Region 8 in the west suburbs, Region 9 in the north suburbs, Region 10 in suburban Cook County and Region 11, which covers the city of Chicago, are all in Tier 2, meaning there is still no indoor dining allowed.

Under Tier 1 mitigations, bars and restaurants can offer limited indoor service to operate at 25% capacity per room or 25 people per room, and meetings and social gatherings are limited to 25 people.

Bars that serve customers indoors under Tier 1 must also sell food, according to the state's plan.

"We are pleased to see most of our regions move out of Tier 3 mitigations with this change, and it is critical that we maintain this progress", said IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike.

The governor on Friday said Chicago "doesn't quite meet the metrics" for restrictions to be loosened, although things are "trending in the right direction". Third, there can be "no sustained increase" in the number of people in the hospital with COVID-19 for seven out of 10 days.

Since the start of the pandemic, IDPH has reported a total of 1,076,532 coronavirus cases, including 18,291 deaths.

Officials said that hospital leaders and local health departments communicated to IDPH that their primary capacity challenge is the need for additional staffing and stressed that state-facilitated staffing contracts will be critical in addressing this challenge.

The announcement came as hospitalizations and positivity rates continued to decline and the state launched a contracting effort to increase hospital staffing, adjusting the available bed metrics that determine mitigation levels.

Nearly10,000 prisoners and 4,000 staff members have tested positive for COVID-19 in IL. In the past 24 hours, about almost 97,000 tests were processed, according to IDPH.

The changes come a few days after IL confirmed its first case of the COVID-19 variant believed to be more contagious and as the state prepares for the next step in its vaccination plan, which will allow those 65 and older to be inoculated.

Coronavirus hospitalizations in IL peaked 6,175 on November 20, although there are still far more COVID-19 patients in the hospital now than at the start of the fall surge in early October, when the state was averaging about 1,500 hospitalizations per day.
