Illinois will be getting more restrictions as Governor JB Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Health work on combatting COVID-19 increases that seem to be going up every day with no sign of slowing. The Governor announced that Illinois was moving back to Phase 3 but it wasn’t a complete stay at home order.
The Governor pushed for mitigations now to avoid a future stay at home order. He explained some of the details of the new orders.
The mitigations also close museums, theaters, and casinos along with indoor recreational activities. All workplaces that have remote capabilities should have their employees work remotely.
There were 82 reported COVID cases in Christian and Montgomery County with over 12,601 new cases of COVID-19 in Illinois over the last 24 hours. For more on the restrictions, click here.
