Region 9 (Lake & MCHenry Counties) is currently operating under Tier 2 mitigations.
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) has announced that Region 9 (Lake and McHenry Counties) has met the requirements necessary to move to Tier 2 of resurgence mitigations. The chart below from the Governor's office highlights the primary differences between the three tiers. Most notably, in Tier 2 recreational activities are now allowed the lesser of 25 guests or 25% of overall capacity both indoors and outdoors, including sports. In order to move to Tier 1 mitigations, a region must meet test positivity and hospital capacity metrics. We are headed in the right direction! Let's keep moving forward by practicing the 3 Ws: wear a mask, watch your distance, and wash your hands. More information is available at dph.illinois.gov/regionmetrics.
