‘Bridge’ phase could be delayed due to recent COVID-19 spike, Pritzker says
Gov. JB Pritzker on Friday expressed concern over a recent rise in COVID-19 cases that could prevent Illinois from entering the so-called “bridge” phase that would prelude the state’s full reopening.
Under the governor’s reopening plan, 70 percent of adults 65 and older need to receive at least one vaccine dose before the state can enter the bridge phase. As of Friday, 67 percent of the state’s seniors had been vaccinated.
