On this episode of Statewide, Governor J.B. Pritzker talks candidly about being in charge through a public health emergency and a near economic shutdown.
We also find out more about restrictions on funerals during the pandemic.
And an Illinois farmer tells us how agriculture is being affected.
That and more on Statewide.
