As you are undoubtedly aware by now, Governor Pritzker has initiated “Tier 3 Resurgence Mitigation” restrictions effective November 20, 2020 to help combat the Covid-19 crisis.

Many businesses with remote capabilities have opted to have their employees working from home since the beginning of the pandemic. Per the new restrictions, working remotely is mandated if possible. Specifically, the new restrictions provide hat “All employees who can work remotely should work remotely.”

Gatherings of 10 or more people are now barred in “Tier 3” with limited exceptions.

The new restrictions address specific industries as well such as retail, personal care services, and bars and restaurants. For more information, the full text of the new restrictions can be found here.
