Sign the Petition: Let the Fans In!


Joining a bipartisan coalition of legislators and educators, Rep. Chesney signed on to a letter to Governor JB Pritzker this past week requesting a loosening of COVID-19 restrictions at K-12 extracurricular events to allow for increasing audience capacity to 25%.

Now, Rep. Chesney is encouraging constituents to sign the Let the Fans In petition demanding Governor Pritzker and IDPH allow at least 25% capacity at all indoor and outdoor extracurricular activities

While Chesney favors much higher capacity thresholds, it was the art of compromise that allowed sweeping bipartisan support and to communicate such unity to the Governor. The Illinois High School Association, the Illinois Association of School Boards, the Illinois Association of School Administrators, Illinois Association of Athletic Directors, and Illinois Principal’s Association also signed on to the letter and support allowing 25% fan and audience capacity at extracurricular events.
