Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot issued an effective consultation on living in a house on Monday as the city reached a “critical point” in the second increase of its coronavirus virus.
The advisory, which was issued, among other restrictions, “asks all Chicagoans to follow clear measures to protect their community and help us level the curve.”
It is scheduled to have an impact at 6 am on Monday.
“Chicago has reached a critical point in the second boom of COVID-19, demanding that we make a multifaceted and comprehensive effort to stop the virus on this tracks,” Lightfoot said in a statement. “The profit we have made in the last one year is a result of our desire to work together. Even in this difficult moment, we will always be united for our city, as we grow out of the fatigue we are experiencing to stop the growth we are seeing, and make a significant difference in our future. Is going to look like. “
Here’s what the new advice includes:
• Leave home only for work or school, or for essential needs such as seeking medical care, going to the grocery store or pharmacy, taking take-out meals,
Or receiving delivery. If you get out of the house, practice social distance by staying 6 feet away from others and covering your face at all times.
• Do not hold meetings with trusted family or friends outside your home with anyone in your home (except essential employees such as home health care workers or teachers).
• Avoid all non-essential, out-of-state travel; If travel is necessary, it is necessary to omit or test the negatives before travel, depending on which state a passenger originates from.
• Complying with city and state orders, including face covering, limiting gatherings, and early closure of non-essential businesses.
• Practice social disturbances and avoid touching the surfaces often touched by others when going out to get fresh air.

According to the city, “Residents are advised to follow the advisory.” It will remain in force for 30 days.

In addition to the advisory, the city will also impose new restrictions for meetings and social events, limiting both to no more than 10 people, inside or out. The capacity limit, which begins at 6 a.m. Monday, applies to events such as weddings, birthday parties, business dinners, social events and funerals, the city said. They do not apply to industries that already have restrictions, such as fitness facilities, retail stores, personal services and movie theaters.
Last week, Chicago’s emergency travel order was also updated, changing it from a quarantine requirement to the possibility of a negative test result that could replace quarantine for some states.
The latest ban also came after the Illinois Department of Public Health urged residents to stay in their homes and leave only for “essential activities.” The Health Department asked employers to allow employees to work from home and recommended against a gathering or travel if possible.
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker warned the state that a mandatory order to stay indoors in the coming days could be made if the coronovirus fails to improve numbers. NBC 5’s Mary Ann Ahorn reports.
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker has hinted at the possibility of a more statewide stay that could be in-house store orders as the state’s coronavirus matrix climbs rapidly.
“I’m very concerned as we approach Thanksgiving,” Pritzker said earlier this week. “I’m very concerned with these numbers growing. And as a result, as I’ve told you, for days, you know, we’re really looking at all the possibilities – chances are we’ll have to go back in a phase. ” The likelihood is that we will eventually have orders to stay in the house – those are not things I like to do. But those are the things that these numbers are not sustainable. “
