The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DECO) has released Phase 4 guidelines for expanded reopening on Friday, June 26, 2020. Governor Pritzker announced earlier today that all four regions of the state are on track to move into Phase 4 on June 26th as the state continues to make progress in combating the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Phase 4 allows for the safe reopening or expansion of several key business segments such as health and fitness, movies and theater, museums and zoos, as well as indoor dining at restaurants. Phase 4 also allows for expanded gathering sizes, increasing the limit from 10 in Phase 3 to 50 people or fewer.  This expanded gathering limit extends to key activities like meetings, events and funerals.
