Things were pretty hectic yesterday but a lot went on outside of the chaos in DC. In case you missed it, Governer JB Prtizker held a press conference stating starting January 15th, if certain regions of Illinois meet the Illinois Dept. of Public Safety's metrics for reduction of mitigation they could come out of tier 3 restrictions. There to two main points to those metrics:
- Test positivity rate of less than 12%
- ICU and Hospital bed availability over 20%
Region 9 (Lake and McHenry counties) is looking like they'll be the first to meet those restrictions. Pritzker has stated, in the tweet below, he's "cautiously optimistic" that this can happen. Keep wearing those masks and washing those hands. 2021 could be our year! More info here.
