Phase 5 Reopening Guidelines
On June 11, 2021, the State of Illinois moves to Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois framework, marking the full reopening of all industries and activities. This milestone in the State’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic was reached following continued progress in vaccine administration in communities statewide.
Under the Restore Illinois framework for Phase 5, all business types, large-scale events, conventions, amusement parks, seated spectator events, among others, are allowed to operate at full capacity since the COVID-19 pandemic. The State’s progress in reaching the Phase 5 stage of reopening also allows the outdoor mask requirement to be lifted in accordance with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance. In Phase 5, industry and activity-specific guidelines for operation provided by DCEO are discontinued. All businesses and activities previously subject to DCEO guidelines are allowed to resume normal operations.
DCEO and IDPH are recommending key steps business owners and venues should follow to promote COVID-19 safety going forward. Read the recommended Phase 5 guidance. For more information on guidelines published in previous phases in the State’s reopening framework and track numerous public health metrics, visit the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).
The Village of Frankfort continues to monitor the development of the COVID-19 pandemic and follows guidance received from the county, state, and federal officials. On May 14, Illinois entered the Bridge Phase, the last step before full reopening. If statewide COVID-19 metric remains steady, Illinois will move into Phase 5—where all capacity limits are lifted—on June 11.
