The Governor of Illinois J.B. Pritzker is expected to issue a shelter-in -place order during a 3 pm press conference today with Chicago’s mayor Lori Lightfoot by his side, according to a report by the Sun Times.

This order is coming after weeks of the coronavirus spreading across the world and essentially crippling businesses and the economy.

The reaction in the United States has been slow. The Saint Patrick’s Day festivities were canceled in Chicago but the bars were still full. These large gatherings are hindering progress when it comes to stopping the spread of the virus.

This order appears to be a response to this. The numbers of those infected has been growing exponentially. This stay at home order is a way to get a handle on the pandemic. Social distancing is more than a phrase. It’s the way of the world.

Grocery stores, hospitals and gas stations and other essential businesses will stay open according to sources.
