Illinois Statewide Stay at Home Order
Governor of Illinois, J.B. Pritzker, announced at 3pm on March 20th, 2020 that an official stay at home order has been authorized starting from Saturday (March 21st, 2020) at 5pm till April 7th until further notice in order to limit the spread of the coronavirus in Illinois.
What does a Stay at Home Order Mean?
Stay at Home Order does not mean that no one can leave the house and everything is closed. Grocery stores, medical facilities, and pharmacies are still opened during this time. Only nonessential businesses should close. School are officially closed to at least April 8th, 2020. This is a statewide order by the Illinois state government.
Nurses, doctors, and workers at essential businesses (plumbers, electricians, grocery workers, etc.) are continuing to serve the needs of the American people. We thank them for helping us during this uncertain time of need. They are working around the clock in order to secure the needs of all people. NECEF greatly thanks them for their actions.
For the people who have no need in going out of the house, remember to stay at home to limit the spread of the virus. It is important to constantly wash your hands and stay clean.
