COVID-19 Preparedness and Response

Illinois and the City of Chicago entered Phase 4: Gradually Resume on Friday, June 26.
Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot, in partnership with the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), industry leaders, labor leaders, and public officials from around Chicago, released industry-specific guidelines for businesses, employees, and customers to follow as the city begins to safely reopen in June.


Restore Illinois is a five-phased plan to reopen our state, guided by health metrics and with distinct business, education, and recreation activities characterizing each phase.
This is an initial framework that will likely be updated as research and science develop and as the potential for treatments or vaccines is realized.


After weeks of data and trend analysis, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) released updated guidelines at the Individual, Family, and Multi-Family Residence levels to ensure they are doing all that we can to help slow the spread of COVID-19.


Anyone with coronavirus symptoms can now get tested in Illinois.
The state will post a full list of test sites to it's COVID-19 response page.


Due to the recently CARES Act, your business may be eligible for aid from the federal government. Review your eligibility with resources from the U.S. Travel Association.
The U.S. Small Business Administration will resume accepting Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan applications on Monday, April 27 at 9:30 AM (CDT).
