How Illinois' neighbors plan to reopen amid pandemic

  • 0

Gov. J.B. Pritzker last week extended Illinois' stay-at-home order through May 30 with a few changes, as some residents protest for an economic reopening.

Under the modified order, starting Friday, people are required to wear face coverings in public as some stores can slowly resume business.

Most retailers can begin taking online orders and provide pickup or delivery service while nurseries and garden centers, and animal groomers have been added to the essential-business list.

Some state parks and golf courses will also reopen and elective surgeries can begin rescheduling appointments.

Illinois joined a Midwestern coalition with six other nearby states, however, Illinois' two western bordering states, Missouri and Iowa, chose not to join the pact.

Here's how Illinois' neighboring states plan to move forward with stay-at-home orders and reopening their economies.
