The End is in Sight

Gov. JB Pritzker announced that the State will move to the Bridge Phase on May 14, and barring any significant reversal, to Phase 5 of the State’s Reopening Plan on June 11.

Gov. Pritzker said that the upward trend of new COVID-19 cases and the upward trend of hospitalizations due to COVID-19 that had been taking place in the last 28 days has stabilized. “The number of people going into the hospital each day with COVID-19 has dropped. The total number of patients fighting COVID-19 in the hospital is beginning to level off, and our Statewide ICU Bed Availability is above 20%,” said the Governor.
