Bridge to Phase 5 Delayed
Date of Event:
April 2 - Update
On March 18, Governor Pritzker announced an interim Phase to the Reopening Illinois Plan. This Bridge Phase was intended to be between Phase 4 restrictions and removal of all restrictions in Phase 5. To make it into the Bridge section of the Plan, 70% of the +65 year old population must be vaccinated. While the vaccination rate has met this 70% requirement, rising hospitalization and infection rates led to the Governor's announcment this week that the Bridge Phase was to be delayed. The delay is currently indefinite. No known timeframe has been established for its reactivation.
Vaccinations for individuals 16+ are still expected to begin April 12. For details, please click here
