Per Gov. Pritzker on March 16: "Last night, the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) announced its strictest national recommendations to date, advising against gatherings of 50 people or more for the next eight weeks. As a result, I am mandating that any gathering of 50 or more be canceled in the state of Illinois. Illinoisans who can stay home should continue to do so. It is imperative that our residents take responsibility for themselves, their families and their communities. Illinoisans who can stay home should continue to do so.
