Chicago and the rest of Illinois are currently in the “Bridge Phase” of the state’s reopening plan, with a limit of no more than 30 people per 1,000 square feet at outdoor festivals. However, state and city officials have said they expect to be able to fully reopen, with no capacity limits, as early as June 11, barring a resurgence in new COVID-19 cases or hospitalizations.
