Illinois Region 5 Restaurant Mitigation Compliance

Governor Pritzker recently announced new mitigation measures for Illinois Region 5. These measures include stopping all indoor service at restaurants and bars until the region’s positivity rate is lower.

Some restaurants in Region 5 have expressed their intent to defy these mitigation measures, thus endangering the health and lives of many people in their communities and region. In response to this concerning development, I’ve created a public spreadsheet called Illinois Region 5 Restaurant Mitigation Compliance. This spreadsheet is a volunteer effort to track which restaurants are complying with or defying the mitigation measures.

My hope in creating this document is that it will encourage people to support restaurants that comply and boycott restaurants that don’t. Many people in Southern Illinois are struggling right now, but that’s no excuse for endangering the public by continuing indoor dining during a spike in community spread. Let’s work together to support each other during these difficult times rather than placing each other in greater danger.

If you have any additions, corrections, or other suggestions for this document, please contact me. I’m also looking for volunteers to help keep this document accurate and up to date. Many hands make light work. This will be an easy document to maintain if just a few of us work together to do it.
