Revised Rules Issued Requiring Masks in IL Restaurants and Bars
Starting Wednesday, if you dine out in Illinois, you will be required to wear a mask.
Governor J.B. Pritzker announced Tuesday the revised guidelines for restaurants and bars statewide to operate safely and help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Due to an increase in COVID cases, restaurant and bar patrons will be required to wear a mask during any interaction with wait staff, food services workers or employees.
Face coverings will be required both in indoor and outdoor dining settings across the state.
Quincy Police issued a statement Tuesday, saying enforcement of the new rules would consist of education of the business owner on a first violation, issuing of warnings for the second infraction and the filing of a report with the state’s attorney for a third violation.
