City to Lift Mask, Vaccine Mandates on February 28

Mayor Lightfoot announced today, Tuesday, February 22, that both indoor mask and vaccine mandates will be lifted with some restrictions.

Masks will continue to be required in health care settings, on public transit, and in other congregate settings. As the City transitions its mitigation measures to remove the mask requirement, many Chicagoans will continue to wear masks in public spaces for a variety of reasons, even if they are vaccinated. For example, after 5 days of isolation or quarantine, masks will continue to be required in days 6-10 in public spaces, as they are now.

Read the press release from the Mayor's Press Office for more information.

We anticipate sharing further information later this week.
