April 1, 2020 -- Following the advice of leading health experts, Governor JB Pritzker on 3/20/2020 signed a statewide stay at home order to keep new cases of COVID-19 from rapidly increasing and ensuring the state’s health care system remains fully operational to treat patients in need of urgent care. The order became effective on Saturday, 3/21 and originally was to go through April 7.

The governor announced in his daily press conference on 3/31 that the state’s stay-at-home order will be extended through the end of April to stop the spread of COVID-19. The executive order also will extend the state’s disaster proclamation and ban on classroom learning through April 30. Pritzker has committed to periodically evaluating the date as time goes on to see if it should be extended or lifted early.

All first responders, emergency management personnel, law enforcement personnel, health care workers and others working to support Essential Businesses and Essential Government Functions like grocery stores and pharmacies are exempt from this stay at home order.  

The governor’s action formalizes his calls for Illinoisans to stay at home as much as possible aside from meeting their basic needs. According  to the governor you can still go to the grocery store and pharmacy, visit a health care provider, put gas in your car, go for a walk or hike, etc. Click on the link below to see the full order:
