SPRINGFIELD, IL (AP) – The nationwide order to curb the spread of the coronavirus remains in effect until May 30, Governor JB Pritzker said Tuesday, despite a judge from southern Illinois ruling that the Democrat had exceeded his authority with the Executive Decreto.
The Attorney General filed an appeal on Monday to appeal against Clay County Circuit Judge Michael McHaney’s decision that the order violated civil liberties. The verdict was passed on behalf of Republican MP Darren Bailey from Xenia, but it opens the door to further challenges.
“This rule only applies to one person, since it was always only one person,” said Pritzker during his daily COVID-19 briefing, who was briefly successful in this stubborn achievement. “
Republican John Cabello from Machesney Park said Tuesday that he plans to file a similar lawsuit, but his will benefit everyone in the state.
The Rockford policeman said he believed that people could take the necessary precautions and live safely without government intervention.
“I want everyone to return to a normal American way of life,” said Cabello.
The state reported another 144 COVID-19 deaths on Tuesday. A total of 2,125 and 2,219 other people tested positive, which corresponds to a total of 48,102. The actual number of infections is likely to be much higher since many people have not been tested and studies indicate that people can be infected without feeling sick.
Pritzker made a state disaster statement on March 9 when there were only 10 COVID-19 cases that allowed him to take emergency public security measures for 30 days. He closed schools, not necessarily doing business, and last week extended the order to stay at home until May. It requires people to stay at home unless they do important jobs, grocery shopping, doctor visits, or emergencies.
Bailey called the expansion unchecked government power.
Pritzker lawyers said the state constitution provides police powers to stop pandemics or other crises. They found that the Illinois General Assembly had no objections to the extension and that the “urgent circumstances” raised by the coronavirus required urgent action. The emergency measures continue to prevent and prevent “thousands of deaths,” said Pritzker.
