Chicago Announcements May 4, 2022

Chicago remains in the Centers for Disease Control “low risk” category for COVID-19, but the city could move into the “medium risk” category by the end of this week if it surpasses 200 daily new cases per 100,000 residents, Chicago Department of Public Health Comm. Allison Arwady said in a news release Tuesday. “Residents should continue to feel comfortable going to work, going to school, and traveling on CTA buses and trains, but should exercise caution, not only for themselves, but to protect others.” Arwady said.  

The Chicago Federation of Labor’s delegates voted unanimously late Tuesday to reelect Bob Reiter and Don Villar to new four-year terms as president and secretary-treasurer of the union, the group announced. The entire “solidarity slate” headed by Reiter and Villar ran unopposed.  

U.S. Rep. Danny Davis (D-Ill.) will host an event with James Smith of Sow Community Development Corporation at 3906 W Gladys Ave. in Chicago at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday to “discuss solutions to the affordable housing crisis,” according to an event notice. They will hold a news conference to “showcase successful solutions to the shortage of affordable housing and building generational wealth.”
