Gov. JB Pritzker extended the stay-at-home order through April 30th. What does this mean? Whatever you’ve been doing the past two weeks, keep on doing it! #stayathome #flattenthecurve.
Public and Private schools will remain closed and transition to remote learning days, while NECESSARY SERVICES WILL CONTINUE TO STAY OPEN: grocery stores, banks, hospitals, healthcare providers, veterinary services, plumbers, laundry services, etc.
COMBAT COVID-19 by instituting SOCIAL DISTANCING and the THREE Cs:
➡ COVER your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and throw tissues out in a lined can.
➡ CLEAN your hands often. Wash with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
➡ CONTAIN the spread of the virus by staying home— “stay-in-place”
COVID-19 is expected to peak mid-April. If you think you’ve been exposed, call your healthcare provider who will arrange for you to be assessed.
