In an extraordinary measure, Governor J.B. Pritzker imposed a “stay at home” order effective Saturday March 21, 2020, at 5 PM CST until April 7, 2020, for residents of the state of Illinois, becoming the third governor to do so. Residents will still be able to pick up food from restaurants, and go to grocery stores, pharmacies or gas stations. Airports and all roads will remain open to traffic. In a press conference late Friday, Governor Pritzker urged all “nonessential” businesses to cease operations. He requested that all people work from home if possible.
On April 1, Governor Pritzker announced that he will sign a 30-day extension of the order. The extension will continue to permit some limited activities and will allow grocery stores, gas stations, pharmacies and other essential businesses to stay open.
