Pritzker isn’t using science or law. He is violating due process rights of citizens not able to open their business, travel where they want, or not where a mask.
The Edgar County Watchdogs have documented in two stories the Illinois Department of Public Health is the only authority to shut you down, and they can’t do it without a court order saying YOU are a public health risk.
Pritzker is not only violating your rights to due process, he isn’t listening to science. See the World Health Organization website, questions and answers: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/question-and-answers-hub/q-a-detail/q-a-coronaviruses
DOES the WHO say to wear a mask? NOPE. 1-metre is 39.37 inches – not 6 feet.
Read this section yourself – too long to copy. It DOESN’T mention wearing a mask! It does mention hand washing, coughing into your elbow, 1-metre, and other common sense precautions
- Violating the due process rights of every citizen
- Ignoring science
Pritzker isn’t the only one, so is Chris Koos. Instead of questioning Pritzker’s authority to shut down Normal’s revenue sources, Koos issued an Executive Order which tells the police to enforce Pritzker’s illegal proclamation: http://www.normal.org/DocumentCenter/View/16503/Emergency-Order-20-008—Stay-at-home-enforcement-?bidId=
I know the Normal police have been called to businesses because a citizen refused to wear a mask. I FOIA’d the body cam of an incident, my FOIA was denied.
I suggest shopping at businesses that aren’t in Normal since common sense and science are not being deployed. If you want your business open now, see the Watchdogs two stories. Give the authorities 48 hours notice to take you to court, if they don’t – open the doors.
