“Any private business is able to mandate a mask, just like they’re able to tell you they’re not going to serve you or let you in if you don’t have shoes,” said Dr. Emily Landon, an infectious disease expert at University of Chicago. “Stand six feet apart,” “masks required,” “temperature checks will be taken.” Basically, if a business has a sign, follow it.

She said, even as the state prepares to fully reopen, some businesses are keeping COVID rules in place to protect employees and customers who might still be at risk. READ MORE: Over 29,000 Unemployment Claims Filed In Illinois Last Week Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Landon said she expects some places like hospitals and public transportation to enforce mask-wearing long-term. But regardless of whether you’re vaccinated or not, Landon said, “You should go ahead and wear a mask anytime you want, wherever you want.”

Landon said unvaccinated individuals can be at high risk for getting COVID, if there are other unvaccinated people not wearing masks or following social distancing rules. “There aren’t a lot of great systems in place for ensuring that it’s only the vaccinated people who are unmasked. We’re largely using an honor system,” Landon said.
