Hi beloved chicago community! As we all well know, we have been having ongoing cases of coronavirus in chicago since back in march. The cases had been very high, and just recently, we reached a lower point in these cases. But unfortunately, some people seem to be taking these things lightly and not being the cautious, responsible individuals we need to be in order to stop the spread of this disease. Henceforth, we are now seeing a slow but steady up climb in new coronavirus cases in chicago, il. Mayor lori lightfoot had warned that if things did not get better and people continued to be non compliant, new restrictions would be imposed in the city. I feel terrible for all the businesses that have been following protocol and rules, and for all the folks who just reopened and now have to take a step back again. Chicago, IL has been one of the most affected areas in the country, and now that progress has been made, we need to maintain steps to keep each other safe and stop this once and for all. Needless to say, we need to come together and stop being oblivious to the fact that it takes one person to spread this coronavirus .
The restrictions include:
-Bars, taverns, breweries and other places that serve alcohol to be consumed on-site will no longer be able to serve customers indoors. Establishments that do not serve food can serve customers outdoors. Restaurants that serve alcohol can continue to operate.
-The maximum party size at tables for restaurants and bars has been lowered to six people,
-There is a maximum of 10 people allowed at indoor fitness classes,
-Personal services that require face masks to be removed, such as shaves or facials, will not be allowed,
-Residential property managers are being asked to limit guest entry to five people per-unit to avoid indoor gatherings and parties.
