See full answer All Illinoisans are asked to practice social distancing, meaning that they should stay at home to the extent possible and only leave home for essential tasks. All Illinoisans should consider themselves as possibly exposed to SARS-CoV-2 and must therefore self-monitor for COVID-19-like illness – especially those who have had close contact with a person with possible or confirmed COVID-19 and those who are healthcare workers. Close contact includes those persons who reside or provide care in the same household of the ill person or are an intimate partner of the ill person. Close contacts should monitor their health at all times but should be particularly vigilant for 14 days starting from the last time there was close contact with the person while they were ill. Persons in whom COVID-19-like illness develops should isolate themselves at home and adhere to guidance on self-isolation at home for persons with confirmed or possible COVID-19 (see above). Such ill persons should only seek healthcare if they have severe or worsening illness.
