Chicago is again increasing indoor dining capacity at restaurants and bars and easing several coronavirus restrictions as the city’s coronavirus positivity rate continues to drop to levels not seen since the pandemic began.
City officials announced Tuesday that, effective immediately, restaurants, bars and events can offer indoor service at 50% capacity. Prior to Tuesday, indoor dining was limited to 40% capacity.
Still, restaurants, bars and event venues will be limited to 50 people within any one space.
