As mentioned before, the presence of COVID-19 is still very much present, and cities are slowly but surely starting to implement restrictions as they try to limit the number of cases.

On Thursday, it was announced that the city of Chicago has issued a stay-at-home advisory and new restrictions for gatherings as they work to decrease the number of COVID cases. The advisory will officially go into effect starting Monday, November 16th.

Chicago Mayor, Lori Lightfoot spoke about the advisory and said, “If changes are not made by Chicago residents, businesses, and visitors to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the city is on track to lose 1,000 more Chicagoans by the end of the year or even more.”
