On March 18, 2021, Illinois Governor JB Pritzker and Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike announced a metrics-based, vaccination-informed framework for Illinois to advance to Phase 5 of the state’s Restore Illinois Plan. In recognition of an increasing national vaccine supply and the state now averaging 100,000 vaccine administrations per day, Governor Pritzker also announced that all Illinois residents age 16+ will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine starting April 12, with additional announcements to come about populations who will be made eligible prior to universal eligibility. Eligibility does not mean that vaccine supplies will be available for all individuals seeking a vaccine, which the Skokie Health and Human Services Department will continue toCoronavirus Deck Page 7 State of Illinois March 18, 2021 (PDF) administer as received. See more information about the Village's vaccination progress.

Currently, every region of the state is in Phase 4 of the five-phase Restore Illinois mitigation plan, with Phase 5 comprising a post-pandemic normalcy. The newly announced metrics offer Illinois a bridge between the state’s current Phase 4 restrictions and the “new normal” operations of Phase 5. This “Bridge Phase” will serve as a transition period with higher capacity limits and increased business operations, without prematurely embracing a reckless reopening before the majority of Illinoisans have been vaccinated. All regions of the state will move through the Bridge Phase and ultimately to Phase 5, together. The state’s mask mandate will continue in accordance with current CDC guidance.

See more information about the new 'Bridge to Phase 5' guidelines.

See March 18, 2021 State of Illinois release on the Phase 4 to 5 framework.
