The Illinois Department of Public Health has provided updated safety guidelines for restaurants and bars that are now allowed to resume indoor dining operations as part of Governor Pritzker’s Restore Illinois plan.
As part of this new order, the IDPH has issued new safety guidelines for patrons at bars and restaurants. The new minimum guidelines encourage patrons to wear face coverings over their nose and mouth when approached and serviced by establishment employees, including but not limited to when employees take orders, deliver food and beverages, and service tables, whether dining indoor or outdoor. Additionally, patrons should wear face coverings over their nose and mouth when picking up carry out orders.
The guidelines also encourages patrons to wear face coverings over their nose and mouth when picking up food at a drive-thru window.
