Gov. J.B. Pritzker claps during a July 31 news conference in Little Village. | Pat Nabong/Sun-Times Gov. J.B. Pritzker issued a statewide masking mandate May 1, but the new rules would give local health and police departments more options — including fines up to $2,500 — to enforce it, without revoking a business’ license. In an effort to slow the rise in Illinois coronavirus cases, Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Friday announced a new set of proposed rules that would offer local officials more leeway to mete out warnings and reprimands — possibly leading to fines — for businesses that run afoul of the state’s public masking and social distancing guidelines. Pritzker issued a statewide masking mandate May 1, but the new rules would give local health and police departments more options to enforce it without revoking a business’ license. And as the statewide COVID-19 rebound continued with the latest 2,084 new cases confirmed by the Illinois Department of Public Health — the first time the state has topped 2,000 cases in a day since May 24 — Pritzker said his rules “will help ensure that the minority of people who refuse to act responsibly won’t take our state backward.” “These rules are a common sense way to enforce mask requirements without jumping immediately to the extremely tough consequences that exist on the books today,” Pritzker said. Under the rules — which don’t apply to individuals — businesses would be given a written notice if they’re not complying with state guidelines. If they don’t shape up, an order would be issued “to have some or all of their patrons leave the premises as needed to comply with public health guidance and reduce risks,” according to Pritzker’s office. And if they’re still not complying, a business could face a misdemeanor charge or fines ranging from $75 to $100. “This is one way for us to make sure that businesses that have been scofflaws on this subject [to] know that there is a real penalty at the end of the line here,” Pritzker said. The proposal was met with swift condemnation from the Illinois Retail Merchants Association. “This proposed rule lacks common sense and is a slap in the face to the thousands of retailers who have sacrificed so much during this pandemic while actively supporting ever-changing health and safety guidelines adopted by the state. Indeed, many of the guidelines ultimately adopted by the state were modeled by retailers well before they were implemented by the state,” Rob Karr, president and CEO of the association, in a statement. Karr said the rules should focus “individuals who are not complying instead of punishing and attempting to demonize innocent businesses.” Pritzker’s proposed rules still need to be approved by the bipartisan Joint Committee on Administrative Rules. They’re up for consideration Tuesday in Springfield. “I can’t tell you the political breakdown of how people will come down on whether we should wear masks or not, but I am confident that that a majority of people in the state of Illinois, a vast majority, want us to have enforcement mechanisms and want us to make sure that people are wearing face coverings,” Pritzker said. The Democratic governor had previously said he didn’t want to take a heavy-handed approach with enforcement of masking guidelines. More stringent masking ideas were floated back in May and met with strong resistance by pro-business groups. Graph not displaying properly? Click here. Pritzker’s proposal came as the state announced its largest new caseload in more than 10 weeks. Public health officials also announced 21 additional deaths attributed to COVID-19. The 2,084 cases were confirmed among 46,869 tests, raising the state’s positivity rate over the last week to 4.1%. The Public Health Department on Friday also updated its list of “warning level counties,” where outbreaks have been tied to risky behavior. Those 13 counties, mostly downstate, “saw cases or outbreaks associated with businesses, long-term care facilities, large social gatherings, and out of state travel,” officials said. That includes students returning to universities, who aren’t wearing face coverings or social distancing. A total of 7,613 people have died among 190,508 who have tested positive for the virus in Illinois since March. Nearly 3 million tests have been administered. As of Thursday night, 1,486 Illinois coronavirus patients were hospitalized, with 333 in intensive care units and 125 on ventilators.

New cases of COVID-19 hit 2,084 Friday and additional deaths were 21 as Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced tougher measures to enforce face coverings and gathering sizes and to fine businesses and schools that don't comply by up to $2,500. The Illinois Department of Public Health is filing the emergency rules that would give law enforcement and local health departments the ability to first issue warnings and then levy penalties.

Looming above the CTA Blue Line L tracks in Wicker Park is an “I AM A MAN” mural inspired by a 1968 photograph from a Memphis memorial for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. | Robert Herguth / Sun-Times More have popped up since the killing in Minneapolis of the Black man by a white cop. One artist says the aim is ‘using this as a time for change and doing that through art.’ Two months after Chicago and the nation erupted in protest of George Floyd’s killing by a white police officer in Minneapolis, a growing number of signs of the Black Lives Matter movement can be found around Chicago in the form of murals and street art. Some memorialize the movement on wooden boards outside closed stores. Others pay tribute more prominently, through expansive murals. In Wicker Park, near the CTA Blue Line L tracks, there’s a mural of a young Black man holding a sign reading “I AM A MAN.” The painting, completed in late June, recreates a 1968 photo from a memorial for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis. The slogan is from a two-month strike by sanitation workers in Memphis to demand proper treatment. King spent his final days with the striking workers before his assassination. Erica Contreras The “I AM A MAN” mural as seen from a CTA Blue Line L train in Wicker Park. The painting is based on a 1968 image of a man mourning at a memorial for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. “We’re having all of these heightened conversations about civil rights and humanitarian rights causes all over the world at the moment,” says artist Darius Dennis, who headed the project. “It’s an opportunity to paint really big paintings — and maybe these are the things that should have been included in history books.” Provided Darius Dennis, 36, headed the “I AM A MAN” mural project in Wicker Park. He grew up in Chicago and now splits his time between Lake View and New York. “I AM A MAN” was done by Dennis, 36, Robin Alcantara, 28, Ephraim Gebre, 21, and Jared Diaz, 25. The artists work together at a billboard company in Brooklyn. CJ Cruz Robin Alcantara and Darius Dennis work on the “I AM A MAN” mural in Wicker Park, recreating a 1968 photo from a memorial for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Diaz, who lives in Queens and describes himself as a “Brown man,” says that even a glance at the news or social media reminds him of social inequality and of threats to people of color. He says the Wicker Park mural challenges people to own their role in fighting injustice. “It feels very empowering and healing,” Diaz says. “To be able to replace some of that space with energy that says, ‘It doesn't matter because we’re going to do something better,’ that’s healing.” M1N6U5 media Jared Diaz (from left), Darius Dennis, Robin Alcantara (hidden) and Ephraim Gebre work on the lettering of the “I AM A MAN” mural in Wicker Park. The artists envision a four-part “I AM” series of paintings to “bring cultural equity back to neighborhoods that need it,” according to Dennis, a Chicago native who now divides his time between Lake View and New York. He says they’re looking at Humboldt Park for one of the future murals in the series. The exterior wall of a condo building at 1339 N. Wicker Park Ave. was the canvas for “I AM A MAN.” Colleen Kendall, 36, and Connor Kendall, 35, have lived in the condo for five years. Connor Kendall and Dennis became friends in high school at Loyola Academy in Wilmette. When Dennis asked to use the couple’s building for the mural, they and residents of the three other condo units said yes. Provided Colleen and Connor Kendall outside their condo complex, which became the canvas for the “I AM A MAN” mural. Connor Kendall and artist Darius Dennis have been friends since high school at Loyola Academy. “We hope the work serves as a reminder to the thousands of people taking the CTA every day of the problems still rampant today,” Connor Kendall says. “As I turn the corner driving home each day, I have an immense amount of pride that we have some part of the messaging.” Recent protests also have inspired shorter-term street art across the city. As business owners put up wooden boards to protect their stores from looting and vandalism in the unrest that followed Floyd’s death, the boards became artists’ canvases. On the walls of what used to be Leon’s Bar-B-Q at 79th Street and Cornell Avenue is a “Black and Brown Unity” mural, calling for peace and cooperation between Black and Latino communities, according to Rahmaan Statik, 39, a South Loop street artist who worked on the project. Provided A group of street artists painted this “Black and Brown Unity” mural on the South Side after another unity mural in Pilsen was painted over within hours of being completed. Provided A street artist who goes by the name “Dred Ske” worked on the original “Black and Brown Unity” mural in Pilsen before it was covered over with white paint. Provided On boards outside Epoch Studio Salon in Wicker Park is a famous quote from the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., painted by the street artist who goes by the name “Nzyme,” 22. A street artist who goes by the name “Dred Ske” — who’s 38 and lives near Marquette Park on the South Side and worked on the unity mural with Statik — also painted “Black Lives Matter” above images of colorful fists on wooden boards at Ashland and Chicago avenues in West Town. Robert Herguth / Sun-Times Artist Dred Ske painted this “Black Lives Matter” mural on wooden boards at Ashland and Chicago avenues in West Town. In the West Loop, artist Jenny Vyas, 44, of Streamwood, partnered with Soul City Church to paint “Be the Bridge,” inspired by a book about racial reconciliation the church community is reading. Provided Jenny Vyas painted this mural, titled “Be the Bridge,” outside Soul City Church in the West Loop, inspired by a book by Latasha Morrison. Provided A street artist who goes by the name “Nick Apple,” 30, from Logan Square, painted a portrait outside Papa Cenar in Wicker Park of Ahmaud Arbery, who was killed while jogging in Georgia in February. Apple also has done other images in the same area of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, who were killed by police, and Oluwatoyin Salau, killed in Florida. The street art is inherently temporary — painted over, torn down or removed when businesses reopen and take down the wooden boards. Newly launched Sounding Boards Chicago, a mural initiative aiming to give the artwork a longer life, is working to collect the boards as businesses reopen. It plans to create an exhibit of Black Lives Matter street art to be “permanently appreciated by the public,” according to Christina Brown, who cofounded Sounding Boards. “It’s amplifying the voices of minorities,” says Brown, 35, of Avondale. “The message we’re really trying to send is just coming together and having this unification in Chicago, using this as a time for change and doing that through art.” Provided Street artist Damon Lamar Reed, 42, of Woodlawn, in front of his mural “If you don’t break the chain, then who will?” outside Wayward in Wicker Park. In it, Reed portrays systemic racism as a chain on Black people. Provided A street artist who goes by the name “Nzyme” painted the phrase “Peace & Love” outside Smile Science Chicago in Wicker Park following the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer.
