(Chicago, IL) - The city of Chicago is restricting travel by Indiana residents. The decision is in response to surging COVID-19 numbers in the Hoosier state.
Starting Friday, many Indiana residents are required to quarantine in Chicago for at least 14 days once they arrive. The same applies to Chicago residents setting foot in Indiana, officials said. Violators face an up to $500 daily fine.
Hoosiers traveling to Chicago for work, to catch a flight and gambling or just driving through are exempt from the order, officials said.
