In the most generous interpretation of Illinois Law (20 ILCS 3035), Governor Pritzker has the authority to order “… all Illinois citizens to stay at home …”, and (20 ILCS 2305) Dr. Ngozi Ezike has the authority to order “… all businesses and operations in the state, …., are required to cease all activities, …”
Governor Pritzker’s authority is only good for 30 days. That authority expired on April 19. Dr. Ezike’s authority is good for 48 hours without consent by the business owner or with a court order. That authority expired on March 22.
