Editor's note: After the broadcast, Pritzker announced he would extend his stay-at-home order for another month. But beginning May 1, it will incorporate some of the ideas Republicans have been proposing: adding nurseries and pet groomers to the list of essential businesses, gradually reopening state parks, and requiring everyone older than 2 to wear face-coverings in public when they cannot maintain six feet of social distancing.
