As the weather warms up and sunny days become commonplace, you (and plenty of other Chicagoans) are probably feeling the urge to spend more time outside.
As of June 26, Phase 4 of Chicago's reopening plan has started, offering new opportunities for outdoor recreation as well as a gradual reopening of indoor businesses. While the city of Chicago has placed some restrictions on where and how you're able to spend time outdoors, there are still lots of things you can do while enjoying some fresh air.
We've pored over the Chicago guidelines and Illinois guidelines to determine exactly what you can (and can't) do outside at the moment. Keep in mind that Chicagoans are subject to some additional restrictions that go beyond the state's guidelines.
We'll keep updating this information as conditions change and the city and state reopening plans are modified, hopefully offering more ways for residents to enjoy the outdoors.
