Reporter Roundtable: Business in Illinois


Alan Light

As of this morning, Illinois now has 141,723 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 6,888 people who have died from the disease. But, even as cases surge in other parts of the country, test positivity rates and hospitalizations have remained within the guidelines set out by Governor J-B Pritzker for the state to move into phase four of easing restrictions. 

Reporters across the state join us to talk about the business landscape as Illinois enters the fourth phase of reopening the state.
