Governor’s Office Hints At Phase 5 Early This Summer

Governor J.B. Pritzker’s office says they are hopeful Illinois can move to Phase 5 by the beginning of summer. Despite the recent rise in cases, the governor’s chief of staff Ann Caprara says there may be some good news in the next few months.

In order to move to Phase 5, 50-percent of Illinoisans 16 and older will need to have received at least one dose of the vaccine. That number is currently around 40-percent.
