Due to a sustained resurgence of COVID-19, Tier 2 mitigations will take effect on Wednesday, November 11, 2020. As detailed in the July 15 Restore Illinois resurgence plan, Tier 2 mitigations may be applied if a region’s positivity rate remains above the 8 percent positivity threshold after 14 days under Tier 1 mitigations. As a result of increased COVID-19 spread and increased positivity rates, heightened mitigation measures will be put into place for Region 8, which encompasses all of Kane and DuPage County, including Villa Park. If a region continues to experience a sustained resurgence of COVID-19 after 14 days with Tier 2 mitigations in place, stricter measures may be necessary to curtail further spread.
What to Expect:
Mitigation efforts will be put into place to reduce the increased spread of COVID-19. Region 8 will be required to adhere to Tier 2 mitigation measures, as determined by the Illinois Department of Public Health. These include the following restrictions:
Meetings, social events and gatherings-
Organized group recreational activities (including sports, but excluding fitness centers)-
In addition, IDPH recommends the following actions be taken:
IDPH will continue to track the positivity rate in regions requiring additional mitigations over a 14-day monitoring period to determine if mitigations can be relaxed, if additional mitigations are required, or if current mitigation should remain in place. If the positivity rate averages less than or equal to 6.5 percent over a 3-day period, the region will return to Phase 4 mitigations under the Restore Illinois Plan. If the positivity rate averages between 6.5 percent and 8 percent, IDPH will continue to monitor the region to determine if additional mitigations are needed. If the positivity rate averages greater than or equal to 8 percent after 14 days, more stringent mitigations may be applied to further reduce spread of the virus, which could include reducing capacity on organized group recreation, fitness or other activities supported by local contact tracing and outbreak data and temporary suspension of certain activities.
