“As COVID-19 cases continue to rise across Chicago, the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce applauds Mayor Lightfoot for focusing on the need to crack down where data shows that cases are spreading, such as private social gatherings. By and large, the business community has stepped up and made the necessary changes to operate safely and protect their customers and employees — from investing in PPE to wearing masks to incorporating social distancing practices across the hospitality, restaurant and retail industries. While the business community has made the necessary changes, we are all in this together and everyone must do their part to protect our communities and keep Chicago open for business,” said Jack Lavin, President & CEO, Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce.
