    I think Illinois is going about it the right way - basing any opening on objective criteria (test positivity, available hospital beds, and lack of increase in hospitalizations), while still limiting dining capacity and party size when reopening. (Perhaps you didn't bother reading the article in the link?)

    Whereas some other states have no restrictions at all, while coronavirus runs rampant...


    From what I can tell there are effectively no restrictions in the suburbs anyways. Most of the bars and restaurants in downtown Plainfield have never ceased having indoor patrons. I've seen similar reports on reddit for many other suburbs.

    Several local law enforcement agency officials have gone on record that they will not be enforcing COVID-19 mitigation efforts. If our government had done more to support residents and small businesses during this crisis, I would like to think there would be less obstinance, but for many of these business owners, closing indefinitely would almost certainly lead to permanent closure not to mention the wage loss experienced by their staff, who now have to endanger themselves to serve those who still think dining out indoors is okay. I've heard that overall tipping percentages are down and the percentage of problematic guests has increased dramatically as more principled people are staying home.

    Inconsistent or absent enforcement is enabling violators.

    Chicago and suburban Cook County are officially open for indoor dining for the first time since late October under coronavirus pandemic restrictions, officials said Saturday morning.
