After 15 months of quarantine and restrictions due to COVID, Chicago officially reopened yesterday and Mayor Lightfoot had a smile on her face.
She celebrated with some big giveaways as incentives to get vaccinated, including $250 gift cards hidden all over the city, passes to Lollapalooza and more. This is on top of what many companies and businesses are doing to support continued vaccinations like time off, free child care and discounts.
If you’re feeling some kind of way about things reopening, don’t worry, you’re not alone and it’s completely normal. Reports are out saying that anxiety is up over going without masks and other restrictions lifting… choose what makes you comfortable and re-engage when you’re ready.
Let’s move forward safely and celebrate those of us who survived and honor those we lost by enjoying and cherishing our health and freedom.
