Illinois Businesses Shut Down Due To Covid As Statewide Numbers Spike, Are More On The Way?

Businesses have begun to shut down across the state as spiking covid numbers have hit their workers hard, causing the places to close temporarily as workers recover. In Rock Island, for example, Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse was forced to shut down for two weeks, delaying the opening of a new show, “Disaster!” due to a number of the cast and crew testing positive for covid.

Early on in 2020, we were both incredibly sick with something that could’ve been covid, but we weren’t sure because, well, at that point, nobody was testing for covid, and it wasn’t until months later that the symptoms resonated with what was being reported.
