  • As of Friday, November 20, the State of Illinois will be subject to additional COVID-19 mitigations due to "exponential spread" of COVID-19 throughout the State.
  • Indoor social gatherings cannot be held with members of other households, and many businesses will need to operate at reduced capacity.
  • The State projects that, without additional effective mitigations, hospitalizations may be as much as five times higher than their spring peak. Between 17,000 and 45,000 Illinois residents would die under this scenario.
