Pritzker to Ease Restaurant Restrictions, Plus an Update on the Legislative Session
State officials say while Illinois has now had more than 100,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19, hospitalizations are trending down. Because of that, Gov. J.B. Pritzker says Illinois will likely ease stay-at-home restrictions more than previously announced allowing outdoor dining at restaurants starting in about a week.
Meanwhile, the Illinois General Assembly is back in session for the first time since winter.
