An Illinois Congressman says Gov. Pritzker's COVID policies seem to be based on politics and not data.
Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Taylorville) says "it's about time" that restaurants are reopening across Illinois. He indicates the statistics do not show that restaurants are superspreaders and that lockdowns are harming local businesses.
Rep. Davis says schools need to reopen to improve the education and mental health of students. He says we know more about the virus now and can follow precautions to keep students safe while meeting in person.
Rep. Davis notes he is glad to see sports return to Illinois schools. He says bordering states that played sports saw fewer coronavirus cases than collegiate and professional teams.
As vaccines continue to rollout Rep. Davis hopes the Governor will change his policies from lockdowns to reopening.
