Current Guidelines

Illinois is open for business.

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve here and across the country, we encourage you to use this webpage as a reference for travel planning and current safety protocols, in addition to links to local resources for up-to-date information.

From the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Illinois’ response has been guided by data, science, and public health experts. Please visit the State of Illinois’ COVID Response page for the most recent data on COVID-19 case tracking and vaccination rates.

The State of Illinois and DuPage County are not currently requiring proof of vaccination for any activities and are relying on individuals to mask as suggested under CDC and state guidance. Private businesses may develop systems that require proof of vaccination.

Masks are required in these settings per the CDC: healthcare settings, congregate settings, schools, daycares and public transit, such as a bus, train or airplane.

Per a mandate by the State of Illinois, all individuals the age of 2 or over who can medically tolerate a face covering are required to wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when in an indoor public place. All employees must wear face coverings in indoor workplaces. Public indoor places refer to indoor events, facilities, or premises in which community/persons visit or work. Public indoor places include but are not limited to businesses, retail establishments, office buildings, entertainment venues, hotel meeting rooms and ballrooms, lobby areas, indoor sports complexes, and other places of leisure.

As recommended by the CDC, individuals are encouraged, but not required, to wear face coverings in crowded outdoor settings and for activities that involve close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated, especially in communities with higher numbers of COVID-19 cases.
