Springfield, IL. (ECWd) -
Gov Pritzker signed Executive Order 2020-07 this afternoon. which states the following:
Beginning March 16, 2020 at 9:00 p.m. all businesses in the State of Illinois that offer food or beverages for on-premises consumption, including restaurants, bars, grocery stores, and food halls must suspend service for and may not permit on-site consumption.
They may continue with curb-side, in-house delivery, third-party delivery, drive-thru, and carry out services.
Businesses located in airports, hospitals, and dining halls of colleges and universities are exempt.
Hotels may provide room service and carry-out. Catering services may continue.
Beginning March 18, 2020, all public and private gatherings of 50 people or more are prohibited - this includes faith-based gatherings.
Suspends the Open Meetings Act of the requirement of in-person attendance by members of the public body.
***This permits public bodies to meet in secret, making no requirement to record or broadcast such a meeting. Shameful.
Secrecy during emergencies fuels distrust in government.
