Illinois governor is set to announce all eligible students and school staff must be vaccinated and wear masks as part of new state-wide mandate: Children over two will also be forced to wear masks indoors

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker is set to order all teachers from kindergarten to college to take vaccines as schools reopen amid surging cases of the Delta variant.

Pritzker also plans to force all children over the age of two to wear masks in class, as well as mandate face coverings for university students and teachers.

The Democrat's announcement is expected later on Thursday and comes after the FDA on Monday approved the Pfizer vaccine for over-16s - taking it beyond its emergency phase.
