As part of his Executive Order in Response to COVID-19, #2020-07, section 6, Governor Pritzker announced in part that "During the duration of the Gubernatorial Disaster Proclamation, the provisions of the Open Meetings Act, 5 ILCS 120, requiring or relating to in-person attendance by members of a public body are suspended. Specifically, (1) the requirement in 5 ILCS 120/2.01 that 'members of a public body must be physically present' is suspended; and (2) the conditions in 5 ILCS 120/7 limiting when remote participation is permitted are suspended. Public bodies are encouraged to postpone consideration of public business where possible."

On Friday, June 12, 2020, the Governor signed P.A. 100-640 (SB 2135) into law, amending the OMA to expressly authorize public bodies to meet remotely without the otherwise required quorum present at the meeting place during a declared public health disaster such as those related to COVID-19.
