Here are the direct links to the guidance for reopening different sectors (child care, restaurants, parks, etc.) of our State and Chicago.
Multiple Sectors across IL: https://www2.illinois.gov/dceo/Pages/RestoreILP3.aspx
Child Care: https://www2.illinois.gov/sites/OECD/Documents/05.22.20%20Restore%20Illinois%20Child%20Care%20Guidelines.pdf
Multiple Sectors in Chicago: https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/sites/covid-19/home/reopening-business-portal.html

As states begin to reopen offices, schools and childcare facilities remain closed or are preparing unproven safety guidelines. This will create a conflict for working parents - mothers and fathers alike - in the weeks and months to come. https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2020/05/france-women-workplace-coronavirus-pandemic/612136/
