On Friday, June 26, 2020, the Skokie area entered  Phase Four of Governor Pritzker’s Restore Illinois Plan to reopen the State of Illinois during the COVID-19 pandemic, described by the State as "guided by health metrics and with distinct business, education, and recreation activities characterizing each phase." 

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.

The Skokie Health Department is available to assist businesses with navigating the Restore Illinois Phase 4 Guidance. Please give the Environmental Health team a call at 847-933-8462 or email info@skokie.org if you would like someone to walk through the guidance with you, including making an on-site visit for a consultation.

Businesses are also urged to report any cases of COVID-19 in the workforce so that the health department team can work with you to prevent spread in your facility. All calls will be answered within one business day.
