Illinois (ECWd) –
Governor Pritzker, during today’s Daily Briefing, announced new guidance for religious institutions in Illinois.
These “guidelines” effectively remove any previous mandates he thought he had placed on them, and replaced the mandates with “guidance.”
This move was hours prior to his response deadline to the United States Supreme Court in the case of Elim Romanian Pentecostal Church and Logos Baptist Ministries v. Jay R. Pritzker, which was seeking an emergency injunction prior to May 31, 2020. Read the Emergency Application for Writ of Injunction to the SCOTUS (here).
Gov Pritzker did say the Illinois Attorney General will file a response to the case on time.
