Governor Announces ‘Bridge’ Phase and Expanded Vaccine AvailabilityIllinois Governor J.B. Pritzker announced earlier today that once the State achieves certain metrics relating to COVID-19 vaccinations, there will be a ‘Bridge Phase’ between ‘Phase 4: Revitalization’, which is the current phase Illinois is in, and Phase 5: Restored of the Restore Illinois Plan. This intermediate phase will begin when 70% of Illinois residents 65 and over have received at least one vaccine dose. If this number stays on track relative to current statistics, the Bridge Phase will begin in 12-14 days. That will initiate a 28-day monitoring period, and metrics continue to be positive, the State can move to Phase 5, which means all businesses can fully reopen, along with schools and normal recreation operations, with new safety guidance and procedures. Additionally, large events, including festivals and conventions can also take place.

The Governor additionally announced that individuals ages 16 and up will be eligible to receive the vaccine starting on April 12, 2021. While there will be expanded eligibility, the Governor did state this does not mean that vaccines will be available immediately, as the State works to ensure vulnerable populations are vaccinated. Estimates on when supplies will be available to the increased eligibility group are by late April or early May. Face covers will continue to be required until the CDC says they are no longer necessary.
