Mpox Disaster Proclamation

JB Pritzker, Governor of the State of Illinois, in the interest of aiding the people of Illinois and the local governments responsible for ensuring public health and safety issues a Gubernatorial Disaster Proclamation in response to the ongoing Mpox situation.

This proclamation will assist Illinois agencies in coordinating State and Federal resources, including the Strategic National Stockpile of medicines, to support local governments in preparation for any action that may be necessarily related to the potential impact of Mpox in the State of Illinois.
