Chicago & Cook County Stay-At-Home Advisory Goes Into Effect (Again)
Stay-at-home advisories are in effect in Chicago and suburban Cook County. Public officials are urging residents to only leave home for essential activities in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot issued the city's stay-at-home advisory last week, saying the city has reached a "critical point" in the second surge of its coronavirus pandemic. Chicago leaders are asking residents to only leave home to go to work or school, or for essential needs such as seeking medical care, going to the grocery store or pharmacy, or picking up take-out food. They are also urging people to avoid all non-essential, out-of-state travel and to limit in-person gatherings. You can find more information below.
