April 7th "Shelter in Place" Order Now Extended to the End of the Month

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker said Tuesday (033120) heís extending his stay-at-home order through April 30 as part of the stateís effort to slow the spread of the new coronavirus, bringing Illinois in line with the federal governmentís latest recommendations. The governorís order will also keep schools closed until the end of the month. Pritzkerís announcement drives home the reality that the crisis likely will only intensify before any sense of normalcy returns. On Tuesday, officials reported 937 known new cases and 26 deaths. Thatís the highest number of daily deaths reported since the outbreak began. There now have been 5,994 known infections and 99 deaths statewide since the start of the outbreak. Cases have been confirmed in more than half of Illinoisí 102 counties. Pritzker said he intends to sign an extension of the stay-at-home order Wednesday, while also extending his statewide disaster declaration. Under action taken last week by Pritzker and the Illinois State Board of Education, school districts on Tuesday were required to begin offering remote learning for their students. Pritzkerís initial order went into effect March 21 and requires people to stay at home as much as possible, although there are a number of exceptions that include going to work at jobs deemed essential, running errands to grocery stores or pharmacies or exercising. The order was set to expire after April 7. The new order will push back the expiration date but leave the other provisions unchanged.

Alternate Reality has been closed since the original "Shelter in Place" order went into effect at 5:00pm Saturday March 21st. With this order we will remain closed from our regular hours until the 30th of April-or until the order is lifted. Future announcements concerning Alternate Reality will be coming shortly.
