JACKSONVILLE — Several state-supported Amtrak services will resume full services starting Monday after being reduced by half because of the pandemic.

Lincoln Service, Carl Sandburg/Illinois Zephyr and Illini/Saluki lines will all return to normal operations. Lincoln Service will have five trips daily between Chicago and St. Louis, with stops in Springfield and Normal.

Young adults are getting jabs at half the rate of older people, prompting bids to counter perceived COVID misinformation online.

Carl Sandburg/Illinois Zephyr will have two daily round trips between Chicago and Quincy. Illini/Saluki Line, which includes stops in Mattoon and Effingham, will run between Chicago and Carbondale three times daily. The Mattoon and Effingham stations are also served by Amtrak's multi-state City of New Orleans service, which is in operation.
