Chicago, Cook Co. Vaccine Requirement Goes Into Effect Today

A proof of COVID-19 vaccine requirement goes into effect today in Chicago. Anyone five years of age or older will be required to show proof of vaccination to go into a restaurant, gym, or entertainment venue where food or drink are being served. The new mandate that’s also in effect in Cook County is in response to a rise in COVID cases. Similar requirements have already been in place in other large cities, including New York and Los Angeles.
