ILLINOIS (WFIE) - Illinois is fully reopened after the state stepped into Phase 5 of its reopening plan on Friday.

This means fully vaccinated people don’t need to wear a mask unless required by law.

Businesses, large events, conventions and seated venues are now allowed to operate at full capacity.

Masks are still recommended for individuals who are not vaccinated, as well as for passengers on planes and buses.

Illinois businesses and venues are also asked to continue to allow for social distancing.

State health officials report 68% of adults have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
