Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration announced new rules for restaurants and bars statewide to prevent the spread of COVID-19, citing a need for additional steps as cases have increased. These latest guidelines require patrons to wear a mask during any interaction with wait staff, food service workers, and other employees at bars and restaurants. Face coverings must be worn over the nose and mouth when patrons are approached and served by staff, including but not limited to when employees take patrons orders, deliver food and beverages, and service tables. This guidance will also apply to other facilities with food services areas that are currently subject to the Restore Illinois guidance, such as indoor recreational facilities, museums, and entertainment venues.

Patrons of drive-thrus are also encouraged to wear masks when ordering & picking up food. Full guidelines are available from DCEO and can be found here.
