Gov. JB Pritzker will issue a shelter-in-place order for all of Illinois due to worries over COVID-19, according to CBS Chicago and the Chicago Tribune.
The order will mean people must stay home unless it is for doctor's visits or trips to the grocery store.
It is very similar to an order that has been issued by the governors of California and New York.
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin says the president has instructed him to move tax day from April 15 to July 15.
"All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties," Mnuchin tweeted out.
He also encouraged taxpayers to file now to get your refund.
The number of COVID-19 cases have nearly doubled in Missouri, according to the latest numbers from the Department of Health and Senior Services.
The biggest number comes from Kansas City where seven people tested positive at private labs.
Locally, St. Louis County has 10 cases, St. Louis City has five and one has been reported in St. Charles County.
This county by county breakdown comes from the health department. The state says it may not match the total case count.
