To prepare businesses and employers to implement the new safety guidelines and to bring many residents back to work, the State of Illinois has developed this business toolkit complete with signage, training checklists, and other resources to ensure business and activities are conducted in accordance with the latest and greatest public health recommendations.

If followed properly, this guidance will allow for a smooth transition into Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois plan and keep us on track for more re-openings.

The Illinois Department of Public Health and Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity wanted to prepare businesses and employers for a new normal in Illinois with an extensive Phase 3 Digital Toolkit.

Social distancing, wearing face coverings, and capacity limits are just a few of the responsible actions we must all take in order to avoid a second wave of COVID-19 infections.

Please utilize this toolkit to its full potential, the posters, checklists, and signage are keys to keeping businesses open and individuals employed.

The Illinois Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (IHCC) applauds your willingness to follow these guidelines and keep your communities safe.

Please set the example as an anchor in your community. The actions we take today will shape the future of Illinois for years to come. We must not let up. We are in this fight together.

Phase 3 guidelines span 10 different industry categories

Each set of guidelines includes a common set of guidelines that are expected and encouraged among all employers and activity types, as well as workplace and program-specific guidelines.

If you have other specific questions or comments about how Phase 3 affects your business or employees, please feel free to get in touch with DCEO.

The IHCC must follow the “Offices Reopening Guidelines” at our Merchandise Mart office:

Common Guidelines for all Phase 3 Businesses and Operations to follow can be found in the Phase 3 Business Toolkit.
