Pritzker was asked at an unrelated news conference Thursday
about the safety of the four-day Chicago music festival given
the increasing number of COVID-19 cases and concerns about the
Delta variant spreading among unvaccinated people.
The governor said he plans to attend with his wife, M.K., and
"I think, again, itís up to individuals to make a decision about
whether they want to be in a large group," he said. "And by the
way, I would recommend to people that if theyíre going to be
jammed together, please wear a mask."
He added: "I intend to go to Lollapalooza. Iím bringing my wife
and a few friends to Lollapalooza. So I think itís OK."
The governor's office did not return a message about what
performers the governor plans to see at the festival.
