Restaurants and bars in the city of Peoria and unincorporated Peoria County expanding temporary outdoor seating on private or publicly owned property during Phase Three of Restore Illinois must self-certify their business at by using the “Certify Outdoor Dining” option. Self-certifying under this category ensures a safe and healthy reopening of the region.

Any restaurant offering carryout, delivery, or pick-up options only are encouraged to self-certify under the “Certify my Business” option.

There is no cost to any business to self-certify, and certification allows employees and the public to know which businesses are following the best practices to keep everyone healthy.
