For Illinois, Pritzker stated Tuesday, “the President at this point is near irrelevant when it comes to this question of testing.”
“I know we all want this to end soon. We really do. But I’m not going to risk having another spike come and having more people hospitalized, having our hospital and health systems overwhelmed and more people dying,” he stated.
“So we’re going to do this very gradually. Very carefully. I want people to get back to work just as much as the President does. But we’ve got to be not expeditious about it, but very careful and rely most importantly on the science.”
