Licenses can easily be renewed online, and licensees do not have to wait to renew their license. If a license holder chooses to renew a license when it originally expires or at any time between original license expiration and March 31, 2021, the license holder may renew a license online at MyTax.Illinois.gov. License holders are encouraged to renew licenses prior to March 31, 2021 in to order to avoid administrative delays at the end of the first quarter of 2021.

Inspections/Visits Steps (as we understand at the current moment):
- I) State of Illinois Liquor Control (ILCC) inspections are on-going and if the ILCC Agent on an initial visit sees a violation of Governor Pritzker’s Executive Order: 1) The ILCC Agent should attempt to educate the licensee of the violation and may ask the location to clear out and vacate the premises. 2) The ILCC Agent may forward the violation to the ILCC’s legal department and/or give the licensee a written form that indicates the violation.
- II) Illinois Department of Public Health Mask Rule inspections are occurring and if a violation is identified then the following 3 steps should be implemented: 1) The Inspector may educate and issue a verbal warning 2) The Inspector may issue a written warning 3) The Inspector may issue a closure notice.
III) Other State and Local Agents are continuing with location visits for various inspections and may also reference Executive Orders and Mask Rule violations.
Fauci said if the “overwhelming majority” of Americans embraced coronavirus immunization by the end of the second quarter, the U.S. would achieve herd immunity — in which the pandemic would be curtailed as enough people in the community would be immune to the disease.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield told members of the White House’s coronavirus task force on Tuesday that the agency was preparing to recommend a reduced quarantine period for people potentially exposed to Covid-19, according to an administration official.
The coming guidance would recommend a seven-day quarantine for individuals who have received a negative test for Covid-19 and a 10-day quarantine for those who have received no test result, the official said. That would mark a reduction from the 14-day quarantine that health authorities have previously recommended.
