Indoor dining in Chicago will be banned later this week following Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker’s Tuesday announcement.

Pritzker said that the number of coronavirus-related hospitalizations in the city has doubled in the last month.

Statewide, the number of coronavirus cases has nearly doubled in the last month.

The state set its single-day peak of coronavirus cases last week with 5,900 reported on Friday.
