Vander Tuuk 11-13-20

(Chicago, IL) Governor JB Pritzker has warned Illinois residents that another mandatory stay-at-home order could be coming, if the state doesn’t start seeing a decline in Coronavirus cases. The Governor blamed individuals and business for flouting his mitigation rules, but dodged questions about himself being at a non socially-distanced Joe Biden celebration, when he was supposed to be under quarantine for exposure to the virus. The state has been setting daily records for Coronavirus cases in the wake of increased testing, and the addition of both probable cases and antigen tests. Hospitals have also been seeing a record amount of patients, but several have said while the numbers are high, the stays are shorter, and they are more prepared than they were back in April.
