Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker plans to issue a shelter-in-place order for the entire state starting Saturday, essentially commanding residents to stay in their homes as the officials take drastic measures to slow the spread of the coronavirus, sources told the Chicago Tribune.
Pritzker is expected to announce the directive at a 3 p.m. Friday news conference along with Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. Details are still being worked out, sources said.

This is like a bad movie on the scyfy channel.
Is Ohio the only red state that has done this?
Hey Svartalfiar, what do they call it here?
More and more I am starting to favor a let the virus run its course while keeping common sense low impact protocols such as restrictions on nursing home visitors and isolation for those who test positive.
Shelter in place sure has a wimpy sound to it. We are talking about a flu. Sure it is highly infectious and will overwhelm our healthcare systems if we let it get out of control. I get all that and take it seriously but ... just damn.
This looks like a rolling shut down to me....who’s next?
I could not agree more.
Pure unadulterated hysteria.
THAT, is why many say that this thing is a manipulated virus the Red Chinese let get away. There is NO OTHER reason they are having this mass PANIC attack.
No, I can assure you The People's Republik of Illinois is VERY "red", and will remain "red" as long as conservatives continue to use the Orwellian mainstream media newspeak.
It’s a nightmare.
All the farmers others who have to care for animals not immediately with them would have to let them all die or not be milked.
Fascinating idiocy on display, everywhere.
Worse than that.
Honestly, they should all just seek shelter in Prince Prospero’s castle.
Well now. Since there was no testing for weeks after the thing got let loose by the Red Chinese, they are now finding out that a whole lot of people have already been carrying the thing.
Pardon my stupidity, but why do you keep asking that?
I see it quite often.
What have I missed?
‘place’ can be a pretty broad definition to different people.
It’s an order to keep your ass at home unless you really have a need to be out.
Pretty much. Every day it’s more shutdowns and more curfews. They think if they do it slowly there will be less pushback.
These people came down here and virtually cleared out our store supplies after they cleared out theirs.
