    Where is the due process part of the IDPH’s epidemic protocol??? Where is the least punative requirement indicated in this “ruling”?? Can’t even follow their own law…

    So they released it on the QT and bypassed pretty much the entire process?

    Upon receipt and choice of recipient, IDPH has a court hearing local to the jurisdiction of each and every recipients’ choice…in 48 hours?

      PS: Good grief! The document does not communicate the Governor’s phased plan nor is there a regional provision. By these ommissions and document footer (PROTECTING HEALTH, IMPROVING LIVES) the communication seems intent to simply overwhelm others.

    When will anything open? This is nuts.

    Sounds like the taverns can serve at the curb and thus allows drinking and driving—WHAAAAAAAT!!!

      Good point. Or will the IL State Police be waiting at the door?

    So there’s no date indicated on this announcement… When are we done with this?

    What you are seeing is the actions of a spoiled child having a tantrum when told no

    How is this any more legal than indefinitely extended a 30 day window

    I didn’t think a state agency has authority to put into place an emergency rule that applies to anyone not employed by that agency

    I am not too good with legalese. Does this mean he can keep Illinois shut down at his discretion until the virus ends? (Forever)
