On March 21, 2020, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzer issued a statewide “Stay-at-Home” order to slow the coronavirus spread. On April 23, 2020, Governor Pritzer eased some of the previous order´s restrictions and extended the statewide “Stay-at-Home” order until May 29, 2020.
According to the Proclamation issued by Governor Pritzker, NursePower Services (“NursePower”) is classified as an exempt organization to the “Stay-at-Home” order because we are a Human Services Operation, and a home-based care and services organization. This exemption also applies to all NursePower staff members.
For your reference, we have provided the exacting wording from Governor Pritzker´s Proclamation that applies to NursePower and our staff members.
“Based on these exemptions, our nurses are authorized to travel to and from work in order to provide services to our clients and children.”
