Failure to comply with these mitigation efforts could subject licensees to discipline, up to and including license revocation.
IDPH will continue to track the positivity rate in Region 4 over a 14-day monitoring period to determine if mitigations can be relaxed, if additional mitigations are required, or if current mitigation should remain in place. If the positivity rate averages less than or equal to 6.5 percent over a 14-day period, the region may return to the original Phase 4 guidance or a modified version as appropriate. If the positivity rate averages between 6.5 percent and 8 percent, the new mitigations will remain in place. If the positivity rate averages greater than or equal to 8 percent after 14 days, more stringent mitigations will be applied to further reduce spread of the virus, which can include the closure of bars and dining.

Municipalities Prohibiting Video Gaming

Municipalities Prohibiting Video Gaming

A municipality may be excluded from video gaming if they have either
  1. availed themselves of the opt-out provisions of the Video Gaming Act; or
  2. have a current ordinance prohibiting gambling in the municipality and that ordinance does not make an exception for video gaming.
The list below indicates whether video gaming will be allowed in each municipality in the State of Illinois. Completing this list is an ongoing process. Updates will likely be made daily. An attempt has been made to indicate where the relevant information was found. The IGB is not responsible for contacting a municipality in order to effectuate a change to the municipality's ordinances regarding video gaming.
If you believe the list below contains errors or your municipality's information is not yet listed, you may have a municipality official or attorney send the IGB a letter on official letterhead indicating whether or not the municipality chose to opt out or prohibit video gaming.
