COVID-19 Information

Your resource for information about COVID-19 in Illinois, vaccination & booster questions and scheduling, Covid testing, and masking guidelines.

Masking Guidelines

On February 28, 2022, Governor Pritzker signed Executive Order 2022-06 lifting the mask requirement in most indoor settings.  In accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance, the executive order also lifts the mask requirement in K-12 schools and daycares.  All individuals, regardless of vaccination status, continue to be required to wear face coverings:

  • Where federally required
  • On planes, buses trains, and other forms of public transportation and in transportation hubs such as airports and trains and bus stations per CDC
    In congregate facilities such as correctional facilities and homeless shelters
  • Health care settings
  • People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should also wear a mask. 

School districts and private businesses can continue to require masks at their discretion. While masks for the general public are not required, there are times and people for whom they are recommended.  CDC’s mask use guidance provides additional information when to wear a mask and considerations for specific groups of people, such as those with weakened immune systems or medical conditions that put them at risk for severe covid.
