What's Open, Closed For Spring Holiday (AKA Good Friday) And Easter 2021?

What’s Open, Closed For Spring Holiday (AKA Good Friday) And Easter 2021?

Even with a COVID-19 vaccination effort in high gear, there’s still a little uncertainty about what’s open and what’s closed as far as government offices, businesses, libraries and other places where folks congregate during Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois plan.

State officials say that, as long as COVID-19-related hospital admissions go up, the state will not advance to the Bridge Phase and on to Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan — so we still have restrictions on how many people can be in a restaurant, for example, and all indoor gatherings are limited to 50 people or fewer, according to the IDPH website.

But this year, what’s closed and what’s open for the Spring Holiday on Friday and Easter Sunday 2021 is perhaps surprisingly similar to the what’s open/closed article from 2019.

As always, it’s a good idea to click on the links below to see what’s posted on the specific government office or business you want to visit.

Here’s a quick rundown.
