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.

I’ve decided to change the way that I use social media.

Effective immediately, I’m making several simple but important changes to what I post on social media, where I post it, and how I allow others to respond to my posts. I’ve decided to write a detailed explanation of these changes both for the sake of announcing them to my social media contacts and for the sake of providing ideas and inspiration for anyone else who may be considering a similar shift.
