On Friday, June 26, 2020, Morton Grove along with other areas of Illinois is expected to enter Phase Four of Governor Pritzker’s Restore Illinois Plan. The reopening plan is guided by health metrics and contains distinct business, education, and recreation activities guidance characterizing each phase to reopen the State of Illinois during the COVID-19 pandemic. To prepare businesses and employers to implement new and updated safety guidelines in Phase 4, the State of Illinois has developed a business toolkit complete with signage, posters, and other resources to ensure business and activities are conducted in accordance with the latest public health recommendations.
Phase 4 guidelines include five new industry categories and updated recommendations for the existing categories from Phase 3. Each set of guidelines includes a common set of guidelines that are expected and encouraged among all employers and activity types, as well as workplace and program-specific guidelines.
As Mayor DiMaria indicates – “Morton Grove truly is incredibly close and amazingly open. Let’s show the world our strong community spirit. We are all in this together, we will get through this together and please continue to support all our local businesses.”
