Phase 5: Illinois Set To Fully Reopen

Illinoisans can officially return to near-normalcy after more than a year of COVID-19 restrictions, following the Governor’s announcement of the move to Phase 5 effective June 11.

This change is just in time for kids to get out of school and for summer plans and trips to be scheduled. 

Phase 5 will do the following:

–  All sectors of the economy reopen with businesses, schools, and recreation resuming to normal operations with new safety guidance and procedures.

–  Large events, conventions, and festivals can resume

Moving to Phase 5 requires that testing, treatment, and tracing are widely available throughout the state, and that positivity rates and certain other COVID-19 metrics are below certain levels. 

Recently, the Illinois State Board of Education voted for students to return to in-person learning this fall.
