City Removes Mask and Vaccine Requirements for Certain Public Settings as of Monday, February 28

28 Feb 2022 6:22 PM | Deborah Hodges (Administrator)

Effective February 28, the City has lifted the mask mandate and proof of vaccination requirement for certain public spaces. 

Activities can resume without wearing a mask indoors, except where required by federal, state, or local rules and regulations, or when as otherwise required by any particular business establishment.

Visitors to City of Chicago public buildings will not be required to wear a mask. 

Masks will continue to be required in the following settings:

·    Healthcare settings

·    Congregate settings (long-term care facilities, correctional facilities, shelters, etc.)

·    Public transportation (airplanes, trains, buses, taxis, ride-hail, maritime transportation, trolleys, etc.): Follow federal guidelines

Businesses can make independent decisions to continue to implement public health measures, including requiring masks and proof of vaccination. Optional signage is available by visiting COVID-19 Communication Resources. Signage may serve as informational messaging, and is not required. 

Many Chicagoans may continue to wear masks for a variety of reasons. The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) recommends Chicagoans who may be immunocompromised or have a family member who is immunocompromised still wear a mask, as well as residents who are unvaccinated.

Please be kind and considerate of your fellow Chicagoan’s choice as to whether or not to wear a face mask.
