ILLINOIS (WFIE) – Illinois is set to fully reopen on Friday.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker confirms the state will step into Phase 5 of its reopening plan, which means fully vaccinated people don’t need to wear a mask unless required by law.

Businesses, large events, conventions and seated venues will be able to operate at full capacity.

Masks are still recommended for individuals who are not vaccinated, as well as for passengers on planes and buses.

Illinois businesses and venues are also asked to continue to allow for social distancing.
