Bars and Restaurants Allowed to Partially Reopen for Indoor Business as Region Moves to Tier 1

The Whiteside County Health Department announced 5 new cases of COVID-19 in Whiteside County.  The Ogle County Health Department reported 28 new cases and 45 recoveries.

It was announced Monday that Region 1, which includes the Sauk Valley, has been moved to Tier 1 mitigations.  This means the Covid numbers have improved, but, not to the point of full Phase 4 standing.

In Tier 1 All bars and restaurants will open at 6am and close no later than 11 pm.  Indoor service is allowed with 25 guests or 25% capacity and no more than 4 persons at a table.  This restriction also applies to meetings and social gatherings.  If numbers increase stricter mitigations may be re-applied.
