Capitol Fax: Responding to “uptick,” Mayor Lightfoot tightens COVID-19 regulations

I'm very glad that since most of June we've found ourselves in a good place as far as infections or deaths from the coronavirus. The bad news is that lately we've seen upticks of infections throughout the state and also Chicago is a hot spot. So we continue to see efforts at mitigation of the spread of this virus.

Recently a quarantine had been placed in effect where if you've visited a state with an uptick in cases of infection - such as Texas, California, Florida for example - you have to be quarantined for 14 days. Of course the next question with that is how does the city of Chicago enforce this?

In any case, check out this press release from Mayor Lori Lightfoot about further mitigations due to the upticks from CapitolFax.
