Governor Pritzker Files Emergency Rules

Governor J.B Pritzker has filed emergency rules for businesses, schools, and child care establishments for the use of face coverings and the size of gatherings. The process will work in three steps. First, businesses will be given a warning. If businesses don’t comply an order will then be given to ask some or all of their patrons to leave in order to comply with public health guidelines. Lastly, the business will face a fine ranging from $75 to $2,500 if they continue to avoid compliance. The public will not be penalized with these rules, but are highly encouraged to continue following state health guidance. The governor also signed a new bill to protect retail workers. The law adds a penalty for assaulting or battering a retail worker who asks customers to comply with state COVID-19 health guidance.
