Today, Governor JB Pritzker‘s briefing focused on hospital capacity and ventilator data.  

ALL IN ILLINOIS

The State of Illinois launched a public awareness program All In Illinois. It is designed to give citizens practical tips and tools to keep themselves and those like medical professionals and retail workers safe. Citizens can also use it to change their social media profiles, print a sign for windows/doors, and share stories of those who are going above-and-beyond to meet the needs around them.

IRMA encourages you to visit All In Illinois and to make your employees aware as well.
