On April 30, 2020, Governor Pritzker signed Executive Order 2020-32 (available via this link) that modified and extended his original Stay at Home Order. The order goes into effect on May 1 and lasts through May 29. The following modifications have been made to Governor JB Pritzker’s original Stay at Home Order (Executive Order 2020-10):


 
• Face coverings are required to be worn by all individuals, when medically tolerable, who are in public places and unable to maintain adequate social distancing of six feet, except for children under age two and when with members of the same household. Face coverings will be required in indoor public places such as stores. The City of Park Ridge has developed an informational piece regarding face covering requirements.


• All essential businesses may remain open consistent with the original executive order. Essential retail stores shall reduce their occupancy capacity to 50% or to the capacity set by the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) based on store square footage, provide face coverings to all employees who cannot maintain social distancing of six feet at all times, set up store aisles to be one-way, communicate these requirements to customers through signage and public service announcements and discontinue use of reusable bags.


• Non-essential retail stores may reopen to take orders online or over the phone for either curbside pickup (outside the store) or delivery. Employees must maintain social distancing of six feet or wear a face covering when that is not possible.


• All businesses that have employees physically reporting to a work-site must post IDPH’s guidance regarding workplace safety during the COVID-19 emergency.


• Fishing and boating in groups of no more than two per watercraft will be permitted.


• Golf courses will be permitted to open only when following strict guidelines provided by DCEO


• Some state parks will be reopened.


• Educational institutions may allow and establish procedures for pick-up of necessary supplies or student belongings and dormitory move-out. These procedures must be in a manner consistent with public health guidelines and social distancing requirements.
