Chicago Announcements August 02, 2021

The Chicago Department of Public Health on Friday issued a new recommendation that everyone over age 2, whether they have been vaccinated or not, wear masks in indoor public settings. A news release from the city’s public health department notes that masking while outdoors remains optional. Chicago passed the benchmark of seeing more than 200 news cases of COVID-19 on Friday. Public health Comm. Allison Arwady during a Sunday news conference said the most recent data shows the city is seeing an average of 206 new cases per day, moving the city from "lower transmission to substantial transmission," triggering the indoor masking recommendation.

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) during his ward night scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday will include “special Budget Town Hall sessions.” Vazquez and his staff are set to "go over what we know (and don't know) about the Mayor's budget proposal, talk through the City's budget process, and introduce our own 40th Ward budget feedback survey.”
