A. On March 18, Governor J.B. Pritzker announced a new “bridge phase” between phases four and five of the “Restore Illinois” plan, which will ease the Phase four capacity limits. The bridge phase, as well as the continuing rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, allows community association boards to possibly reopen with restrictions, pools, party rooms and fitness centers (with social distancing protocols and sanitizing). However, it is still within the discretion of the board of directors to determine when to reopen common amenities for residents based on health and safety rationale. It should also be noted that while the state of Illinois has a bridge plan between phases four and five, the city of Chicago’s suggested Phase Four guidelines for residential buildings has not yet been revised. Thus, the city’s Phase Four capacity limits for outdoor common areas, indoor common areas, fitness centers and swimming pools remain in effect.
