Illinois Mask Mandate Starts Monday

CHICAGO (CBS ) -- It's time to mask up again.

Starting Monday, across Illinois, you'll have to keep your face covered indoors.

The rule applies to everyone over the age of two inside public places, regardless of your vaccination status. Similar requirements have already started in the city of Chicago and suburban Cook County.

Governor Pritzker said his statewide mask mandate is one way to stop hospitals from filling up with COVID patients. Meanwhile, the governor is not bringing back indoor capacity limits for the time being.
