The city of Chicago has announced it is closing the central business district and loop area to only employees whose businesses are located in the business and residents who live in the central business district due to demonstrations.
“The City of Chicago today announced new precautionary measures to further ensure the health and safety of residents and the hundreds of peaceful protestors participating in rallies this Sunday,” Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office said in a news release. “As part of these efforts, the city announced that multiple routes to the Central Business District will be temporarily reduced today following multiple public safety incidents and property damage that occurred overnight.”
