City of Beardstown issued the following announcement on March 20.
Today at 5pm, the Stay at Home order will formally take effect.
I encourage everyone to visit our website, coronavirus.illinois.gov, for more details and frequently asked questions as to what this means for you.
The Stay at Home order is an opportunity for the rest of us to do our part to protect the people on the front lines of this fight and the people most vulnerable to its consequences.
I ask you to help them out by simply staying home.
You will be keeping the virus from spreading and you’ll be helping the heroes who live and work in your neighborhoods.
