Mayor says Chicago won't be ready for outdoor dining in May



CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot says the city’s restaurants won’t be ready for outdoor dining this month after Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker eased restrictions for restaurants starting May 29. Lightfoot says June is more likely and she’s open to the possibility of closing streets to allow restaurants the space to operate. She says there are many considerations about safety, in addition to making sure restaurants of all sizes have similar opportunities. Pritzker has said dining will be allowed starting May 29 at restaurants that can place tables 6 feet apart and observe other safety protocols, a loosening of previous reopening plans.
