Indicators of COVID-19 transmission appear to be on track to allow Illinois to transition to move the state to the "bridge phase" of economic reopening sometime next week, Gov. J.B. Pritzker said Monday.
Gov. J.B. Pritzker said Monday the state could enter the “bridge” phase to greater reopening as soon as next week, while the state’s vaccination rate continues to drop.
More than 8 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Illinois, but the state continues to experience upward trends in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, officials said.
Vaccinations continue to increase, but the vast majority of Illinoisans have still not been completely vaccinated. As of Thursday, 17.3 percent of the state’s population, or over 2.2 million people, were fully vaccinated. More than 5.9 million doses have been administered of the more than 7.5 million doses that have been distributed to providers.
Some business operating restrictions were to be lifted this week under Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s "bridge phase,” which precedes a full reopening. The plan requires hospitalization to hold steady or decline over a 28-day period.
Gov. J.B. Pritzker received a COVID-19 vaccine and briefly took questions from reporters at the Illinois State Fairgrounds on Wednesday as the state’s seven-day rolling average COVID-19 positivity rate ticked up to its highest point since Feb. 22.
With 64 percent of the state’s seniors having received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, Illinois is nearing the “bridge” phase of reopening that will allow for greater capacity limits at businesses and social gatherings.
