United Center Reopens as Chicago Further Eases COVID Restrictions

The Lightfoot administration has launched Open Chicago, its latest initiative to safely and fully reopen the city following the COVID-19 pandemic. Open Chicago’s initial programming will feature activated, re-imagined, and pop-up spaces for Chicago residents.

Additionally, Chicago will be loosening Phase Four regulations to allow for higher capacity across industries, effective immediately. For restaurants and bars, indoor capacity can increase to the lesser of 50% or 100 people, while large indoor venues, including the United Center, can now operate at 25% capacity. 

“We have made significant progress over the past few weeks in daily case counts, test positivity, and other important metrics, allowing us to further reopen Chicago,” said Allison Arwady, Chicago’s public health commissioner.

She added, though, “I have to warn everyone that we are not out of this pandemic yet, and we need to continue to be safe and smart. We need all Chicagoans to get the vaccine.”
