Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced that the state’s mask mandate is changing following new guidance for fully vaccinated people from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Pritzker said he is issuing an updated executive order that will remove the mask requirement for fully vaccinated residents in most settings and the Illinois Department of Public Health “is rescinding emergency rules in the Control of Communicable Disease Code that enforce masking and distancing for vaccinated people in business settings.”
Officials said unvaccinated residents should continue wearing masks in most settings and residents should continue wearing masks on public transportation, in congregate facilities and in healthcare settings regardless of their vaccination status.

Lead Service Line Replacement Programs Taking Applications Last fall the City has announced two new lead service line replacement programs for homeowners who would like to replace their lead service lines. If you live in a single-family or two-flat home built before 1986, it is likely that you have a lead service line. Chicago’s drinking water is in compliance with all industry, state and federal standards so replacement is completely voluntary.
Healthy Start is part of a national effort to improve birth outcomes, reduce infant mortality (death of a baby before age 1, maternal mortality and improve the health and wellness of families, mind, body and spirit! The program’s goal is to help, support, serve and improve the health of women, men and families living in Englewood, South Shore and Auburn Gresham.
