“Thanks to the tremendous efforts of our health care workers and residents, Illinois has done better at keeping our people safe with vaccines, boosters, and masking, which puts us in a position to continue to scale back health care requirements in line with the CDC,” said Governor JB Pritzker. “COVID-19 is on its way to becoming endemic, like the flu, but it still poses a real threat to our immunocompromised and disabled communities. Here in Illinois, we look out for one another-it’s what defines us as Illinoisans. Let us continue to live up to those ideals by masking up and testing when we have symptoms and getting COVID-19 booster shots-as I recently did-so that we can protect our neighbors.”
This amendment to the state-issued order also nullifies the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for healthcare employees, affirming the guidelines of the CDC.

On Saturday, April 24th, 2021, from 10:00am to 2:00pm, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will hold its 19th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. Held on the last Saturday of April and October of every year, this national event addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. Since its introduction to the public on September 25, 2010, the DEA has collected and incinerated over 492.7 tons of unwanted, unused, and potentially dangerous medications.
According to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health 6.2 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. Unfortunately, a majority of misused prescription drugs are obtained from family, friends, and relatives from their kitchen, bedroom or medicine cabinet.
The DEA’s National Take Back Day is an opportunity for Americans to help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths and to raise awareness about the dangers of opioid misuse.
The DEA is asking for your help in getting the word out. As a DEA-registered doctor, dentist, nurse practitioner, physician’s assistant, veterinarian and/or state authorized dispensing pharmacist, you are perfectly situated to help DEA spread the word about this important initiative. You can help by providing patients with information on how to locate a safe, convenient and anonymous collection location.
For more information please visit DEAtakeback.com. We have also created a “Partnership Toolbox” where you will find posters and pamphlets, in both English and Spanish, that you can print and place in your waiting rooms. This site may also be used to identify a collection location in close proximity to your office.
Please help DEA in its effort to help keep unused prescription drugs out of the wrong hands. The DEA thanks you for your support!
