So just when we thought it was safe to back in the water….Well you know! COVID restrictions coming back and just in time for your weekend! May I suggest a couple of things. Check to see if your favorites spots, bars and/or restaurants are resuming or continuing carry out service. Frequent those places you like and spend a little more money and also add a bigger tip. These peeps have been hurting and this situation just makes their lives that much tougher. The holidays are right around the corner and this really sucks for them particularly! This is the time for you to get involved with your community and help folks you know and places you frequent and also those you don’t know. These are such crazy times and there is some much disagreement and division about these issues. Let’s put our differences aside and pitch to help those in need. The Need is great the Time is now!!
Here are the new restrictions going into affect on Friday.
New Restrictions for Regions 7 and 8
Governor J.B. Pritzker is placing Regions 7 and 8, which include Will, DuPage, Kane and Kankakee counties, under additional restrictions. The mitigations will begin Friday, and are a result of COVID-19 rolling positivity rates in those regions rising over 8% for three days in a row. Bars and restaurants will be restricted from providing indoor service, and must close by 11 p.m. Gatherings will be limited to 25 people or 25% of room capacity. The restrictions will last for at least 2 weeks. They will then be lifted once a region’s 7-day positivity rate remains at 6.5% or below for three consecutive days.
