Stay-at-Home Order Extended to May 30


Byline: HOLLY KEE hkee@localsouthernnews.com

As both positive cases and the death toll from COVID-19 continue to rise in Illinois, Gov. JB Pritzker announced on Thursday that he is extending the state's stay at home order until May 30.

The announcement came during one of Pritzker's daily briefing.

Meanwhile, several area legislators and officials have joined forces urging Pritzker to amend state order for southern Illinois.

State Sens. Dale Fowler (R-Harrisburg), Paul Schimpf (R-Waterloo), and State Reps. Dave Severin (R-Benton), Patrick Windhorst (R-Metropolis), and Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro) have joined with the Southern Illinois Mayors Association (SIMA), and medical, hospital, and emergency management professionals, recreational enthusiasts, religious leaders, and educators in urging Pritzker to amend state guidance on several issues that have arisen from the State's response to the COVID-19 crisis.

Fowler and Schimpf issued a joint statement.

"As Illinois looks to the future and how we can loosen restrictions on some segments of our economy, collaboration and communication will be essential.

We hope to work with the governor, local elected officials, the medical community, emergency management agencies, and the business and recreational communities to convince the governor that Southern Illinois can loosen some restrictions safely and effectively. We offer our suggestions with respect for the fact that Gov. Pritzker has been faced with extraordinarily difficult circumstances. As a coequal branch of government, we hope the governor will thoughtfully consider our suggestions in the event of an extension of stay at home orders or another disaster declaration."

Bryant, Severin, and Windhorst issued a separate joint statement.

"We sincerely appreciate the input we have received from our constituents, from elected officials, and representatives from a large cross-section of southern Illinois, We have built a list of priorities that we will forward to the governor to consider in the event the stay-at-home orders are extended. From taking suggestions from constituents and affected businesses, to hearing from mayors, emergency management officials, educators, and religious leaders, building this list has been a collaborative effort. We believe we can safely reopen some businesses, and resume some outdoor activities."

The Southern Illinois Mayors Association, chaired by Sesser Mayor Jason Ashmore, issued the following statement:

"As the first line of response to the people and members of our communities, we have joined with our legislators to compile a list of requests for the governor to consider in the event he issues a new disaster declaration. …
