Chicago's Stay-at-Home Order Has Been Extended


Chicago's stay-at-home order has been extended through January 11th:

The city of Chicago extended its stay-at-home advisory through Jan. 22 as the coronavirus pandemic continues, city officials announced Sunday.

In mid-November, Chicago issued the advisory in response to the second surge of the coronavirus pandemic.

The measure, which was issued among other restrictions, "calls on all Chicagoans to follow clear measures to protect their community and help us flatten the curve."

Here's what is included in the advisory, according to information provided by the city of Chicago:

• Avoid all non-essential, out-of-state travel; if travel is essential, quarantining or testing negative prior to travel is required, depending on which state a traveler is originating from.  

• Indoor gatherings within private residences cannot exceed six non-household members

• Per Illinois Gov. Pritzker's executive order, all restaurants and bars must suspend indoor dining and service

• Non-essential businesses must be closed to the public between the hours of 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. Bars, restaurants and other establishments with a Tavern or Consumption on Premises-Incidental Activity license can sell alcohol onsite or to-go until 11 p.m.

• Residents who exhibit any COVID-19 symptoms must shelter in their place of residence.
