Governor J.B. Pritzker says Tier Three restrictions will stay in place until at least mid-December. The move is a response to an expected surge in COVID-19 cases related to Thanksgiving travel and gatherings. Positivity rates and hospitalizations are trending downward in the state, and several regions seemed days away from rollbacks in the stricter measures. Pritzker says the restrictions will remain in place even if a region qualifies to have them lifted.
