Chicago's Loop to reopen as suburb asks locals to stay home

CHICAGO (AP) — The general public will be allowed to enter Chicago’s central business district and commercial areas Wednesday, several days after roads were closed to limit access after violence erupted in the wake of marches protesting the death of George Floyd. The reopening of access announced Tuesday by  Mayor Lori Lightfoot comes as the city begins to reopen after weeks of being shutdown as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. As Chicago officials restore access to downtown, authorities in a Chicago suburb where two people were fatally shot in unrest enforced safety precautions imposed Tuesday.  Cicero officials warned residents to “stay home and stay off the streets” and declared a “state of emergency” a day after violence and destruction erupted in the town west of Chicago.
