Extended Through May 30: "Stay At Home" Order Throughout The State Of Illinois

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker announced today that the current "stay at home" order will be extended with modification through May 30 at a signing next week. All Illinois residents will continue to be prohibited from certain activities, and non-essential businesses will still remain closed. Most individuals unable to maintain social distancing in public will be required to wear face coverings. Phased re-opening of the state will commence thereafter. The below, existing mandate details are subject to change:

  • Within the outlined exceptions, all individuals currently living within the State of Illinois are ordered to stay at home or at their place of residence. Whenever possible, individuals are to maintain social distancing.

  • All non-essential business and operations must cease, excluding remote performance of work from residencies. All essential business and operations are encouraged to remain open, including stores that sell groceries and medicine, organizations that provide charitable and social services, producers and distributors of agriculture and cannabis, financial and educational institutions, and many others.

  • All public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring outside a household are prohibited. Only travel considered essential is allowed. People riding public transit must comply with social distancing requirements to the greatest extent feasible.

  • During this time, all state, county, and local law enforcement officers will cease enforcement of orders of eviction.

We will post the full executive order when it is signed next week.
