Per the CDC on April 18th: “As a result of a court order, effective immediately and as of April 18, 2022, CDC’s January 29, 2021 Order requiring masks on public transportation conveyances and at transportation hubs is no longer in effect. Therefore, CDC will not enforce the Order. CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings at this time.”

Masks are no longer required on public transit, in public transit hubs, or in airports in Illinois. Metra and Chicago Transit Authority also have dropped their mask requirements.

The State of Illinois and DuPage County do not require proof of vaccination for any activities. Private businesses may develop systems that require proof of vaccination.

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.
