The State of Illinois announced revised guidelines for restaurants and bars due to the recent increase in COVID cases effective as of August 26th. The latest guidelines require patrons to wear a mask during any interaction with wait staff, food service workers and other employees at bars and restaurants. Face coverings must be worn over the nose and mouth when patrons are approached and served by staff, including but not limited to when employees take patrons orders, deliver food and beverages, and service tables. This is for both indoor and outdoor services.
