Businesses in Illinois that violate the state’s stay-at-home order could face as fine of up to $2,500, according to a lawyer for Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s office.The new penalty level was implemented on Friday afternoon when the emergency rule was filed by Pritzker, lawyer Ann Spillane told WTTW. The rule change codifies it under the Illinois Department of Public Health regulations, meaning that violators will face a Class A misdemeanor, which is punishable by a $75 to $2,500 fine.
