Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker is expected to announce an easing of mask mandates later today, but he will reportedly keep them for schools:

WGN Investigates has learned that easing restrictions will likely happen in stages with requirements for masking in most indoor public places fully lifted by March 1.

Notably, Pritzker is expected to attempt to keep a masking requirement in place in schools as the state appeals a judge’s ruling that many school districts have interpreted to mean they can’t enforce masking among students.
