CDPH now recommends that everyone 2+ wear masks in public indoor settings

Chicago Department of Public Health - August 17, 2021

https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/sites/covid-19/home.html

Starting Friday (8/20/21), masks will be REQUIRED in all indoor public settings as the average number of new daily cases of COVID-19 in Chicago surpassed 400. Everyone regardless of vaccination status will be required to wear a mask while indoors in public settings.

This mandate includes all indoor public spaces such as bars and restaurants, gyms, common areas of condos/residential buildings, and private clubs. Like previous mask mandates, masks can be removed during certain activities that require it, and in offices not open to the public, when you can distance.

The new public health order does not include capacity limits at public places, and masking remains optional in outdoor settings, where the risk of COVID-19 transmission is lower. Masks are recommended for unvaccinated individuals in crowded outdoor settings.

Mask Guidance Update
CDPH now recommends that everyone 2+ wear masks in public indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. Masking remains optional in outdoor settings, where the risk of COVID-19 transmission is lower.
