In alignment with the City of Chicago, the Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) is planning to increase capacity limits for several sectors in our suburban Cook County jurisdiction. Our metrics continue to trend in the right direction, allowing for us to make this change.
The new mitigation order CCDPH will be issuing allows for an increase in capacity from the lesser of 40% of capacity or 50 people, to the lesser of 50% capacity or 50 people in restaurants, bars, and event spaces. Performance venues, movie theaters and personal services and health and fitness centers can also increase to 50% capacity (increase from 40%) with no more than 50 people within any one space. Health and fitness centers can also increase capacity to 20 people in indoor fitness classes (up from 15), as long as six feet of spacing can be maintained.
