COVID-19 Illinois Update (3/20/20)
This email is being sent to our Easterseals staff, who live in the state of Illinois and all Easterseals management.
A few moments ago, Governor Pritzker (Illinois) issued a "shelter-in-place" order for the state of Illinois. We are in contact with the state and will keep our Illinois staff informed on any changing details.
What does "shelter-in-place" mean? Residents of the state will be required to stay in their homes except for "essential" travel. Essential travel includes to work for many businesses, including healthcare and community service providers such as Easterseals, banks, grocery stores, and gas stations. These businesses will remain open and traveling to those places in, around, and outside Illinois is allowed. The borders of the state will NOT be closed to travel, and it should not impact getting to your Easterseals work location.
At this time, we do not believe you need any special documentation to drive to work. However, should that become a state requirement, we will get that to you immediately. We will continue to be in touch with the state and will keep you posted.
Thank you for your dedication.
Chief Human Resources Officer
