On June 26, 2020, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker extended by 30 days, until July 26, 2020, the disaster proclamation relating to COVID-19. As a result, public bodies may continue to hold virtual board meetings pursuant to recent amendments to the Open Meetings Act. The Governor’s order also provides that in-person meetings of more than 50 people is not feasible. Accordingly, meetings should be limited to no more than 50 people in one room. Review our recent checklist  to assist your public body with compliance with the virtual board meeting requirements during the disaster proclamation.

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
