State of Illinois Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates - Click Here

Dear friends,

 

On Wednesday, the governor offered up a new plan to help address future COVID-19 outbreaks. This plan does three things:

  • Establishes concrete, measurable criteria to determine when extra steps are needed to control outbreaks.
  • Breaks Illinois down from four regions to 11, allowing more targeted responses.
  • Establishes a clear plan for addressing outbreaks that is less restrictive than immediately returning to an earlier phase of our reopening schedule.

I want to thank you for continuing to provide feedback to me and other elected officials. We have all been conveying your questions and concerns to the governor and the Illinois Department of Public Health, and this new, more targeted strategy is largely due to the people of Illinois’ willingness to work together to address this crisis.

 

I also want to urge you to continue to wear masks, practice social distancing, and follow other guidelines from health experts. Taking these safety precautions will help ensure no region needs to move backward and our local small businesses continue to recover.

Please continue to wear masks, practice social distancing, and follow other guidelines from health experts. These safety precautions will help keep our neighbors safe, and ensure no region needs to move backward and that our local small businesses continue to recover.

 

Sincerely,


Heather A. Steans
State Senator, 7th Illinois Senate District
