CHICAGO — Vice President Kamala Harris will make her first visit to Chicago on Tuesday since being sworn-in.

She will be focusing on vaccine equity during her trip, according to the White House. Harris will return to Washington D.C. following her time in Chicago. Specific events surrounding the vice president’s visit are unknown at this time.

As April begins Thursday, the city warned that Wrigley Field and Guaranteed Rate Park may close to spectators as COVID-19 hospitalizations and cases, particularly among younger adults, continue to tick upward. Both the Cubs and the White Sox will be allowed to admit as much as 25% percent capacity.

On Wednesday, officials announced 2,592 new confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus in Illinois, including 28 additional deaths.
