Pritzker: COVID Hospitalization Rate Will Determine Status of State Mask Mandate

(IOCI RADIO) – Gov. J.B. Pritzker said Tuesday the COVID-19 hospitalization rate will help determine how long the state’s mask mandate lasts.

“Numbers are looking up,” according to the governor, with less COVID patients in the hospital now.

The governor warned that once lifted, the mask mandate could be put back in place if COVID numbers surge again.
