Pritzker to extend stay-at-home order until April 30th

Governor J.B. Pritzker announced on Tuesday that the stay-at-home order in Illinois will carry on until the end of April. This is all part of a continued effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The governor is expected to sign it into an executive order today. Illinois residents are expected to stay home and only leave for essentials. This order will also extend the closing of all Illinois schools until April 30th.

“My priority through each and every one of these decisions has been, and continues to be, saving as many people’s lives as possible. That’s the one goal I will put above all others every time,” said Pritzker.
