Coronavirus

JB Pritzker, Governor of the State of Illinois, in the interest of aiding the people of Illinois and the local governments responsible for ensuring public health and safety issues a Gubernatorial Disaster Proclamation in response to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

This proclamation will assist Illinois agencies in coordinating State and Federal resources, including the Strategic National Stockpile of medicines and protective equipment, to support local governments in preparation for any action that may be necessary related to the potential impact of COVID-19 in the State of Illinois.

Chicago Protest

Following George Floyd’s death, large public protests emerged in communities across the United States, including Chicago and throughout Illinois. Thousands of people expressed their pain, fear and rage at the deaths of African Americans, caused by centuries of individual and systemic racism. After hours of peaceful protests, tensions heightened with aggressive action, including setting cars on fire, vandalizing buildings, and looting. The City of Chicago and several other communities requested assistance from the State of Illinois. These proclamations shall be effective immediately and remain in effect for 30 days from their issuance.

Bureau County Flooding

The City of DePue in Bureau County suffered significant and extensive damage due to thunderstorms on May 28, 2020. The area saw 3.00 inches of rain in 50 minutes, causing high impact flash flooding. As a result, its residents continue to struggle to repair the damages. Therefore, this proclamation declares Illinois a disaster area, specifically Bureau County. This proclamation shall be effective immediately and remain in effect for 30 days.
