Here’s What’s Changing in Phase 4 – NBC Chicago

Illinois is set to enter phase four of its reopening plan Friday, bringing back several businesses and increasing capacity for others.

The state has been in phase three of its plan since May 29.

Phase four of the “Restore Illinois” plan allows for the reopening or expansion of several industries, including indoor dining at restaurants, health and fitness, movies and theaters, museums and zoos and more. This next phase also increases the size of gatherings that are allowed from 10 people to a maximum of 50 people.

Here’s a look at the changes and restrictions:
