Forest Park, IL—Today, the Cook County Department of Public Health issued COVID-19 Mitigation Order 2021-5 to continue easing mitigation measures in suburban Cook County.

Effective immediately, Mitigation Order 2021-5 increases capacity limits in bars, restaurants and event spaces to the lesser of 50% or 50 people. The Mitigation Order also includes masking language, reinforcing the need for all over two years of age who can medically tolerate wearing masks to do so in public places.

“Although the progress made in the metrics is encouraging, we must continue to protect the safety and health of Cook County residents and wear masks, watch our distance, and wash our hands,” said Dr. Rachel Rubin, Senior Medical Officer and Co-Lead, Cook County Department of Public Health. The COVID-19 metrics continue to improve, which allows CCDPH to align with the Chicago Department of Public Health and the Stickney Township Public Health District and ease mitigation restrictions in suburban Cook County. 

“The light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel is getting brighter, but we must move forward with caution to safely reopen businesses in suburban Cook County,” said Dr. Kiran Joshi, Senior Medical Officer and Co-Lead, Cook County Department of Public Health.
