From the last paragraph of their page..."If you do not adhere to these Executive Orders, the Illinois Department of public Health and Certified Local Health Departments have the authority, pursuant to the Department of Public Health Act (20 ILCS 2035/I -I. I a/ sea.), the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois @epartment of Public Health Powers and Duties Law) (20 ILCS 2310/I e/ sea.) and the Control of communicable Diseases Code (77111. Adm. Code 690), to order that a place be closed and made off limits to the public "to prevent the probable spread of a dangerously contagious or infectious disease . . . until such time as the condition can be corrected or the danger to the
public health eliminated or reduced in such a manner that no substantial danger to the public's health any longer exists." 20 ILCS 2305/2®). The process of issuing such an order is set forth in 20 ILCS 2305/3(c).
Furthermore, police officers, sheriffs and all other officers in Illinois are authorized to enforce such orders"
It refers to 20 ILCS 2305/2(b) and 20 ILCS 2305/3(c)
Following is 2305/2(b) I have included (c) because there is a reference to in in (b)
(b) Subject to the provisions of subsection (c), the Department may order a person or group of persons to be quarantined or isolated or may order a place to be closed and made off limits to the public to prevent the probable spread of a dangerously contagious or infectious disease, including non-compliant tuberculosis patients, until such time as the condition can be corrected or the danger to the public health eliminated or reduced in such a manner that no substantial danger to the public's health any longer exists. Orders for isolation of a person or quarantine of a place to prevent the probable spread of a sexually transmissible disease shall be governed by the provisions of Section 7 of the Illinois Sexually Transmissible Disease Control Act and not this Section.
(c) Except as provided in this Section, no person or a group of persons may be ordered to be quarantined or isolated and no place may be ordered to be closed and made off limits to the public except with the consent of the person or owner of the place or upon the prior order of a court of competent jurisdiction. The Department may, however, order a person or a group of persons to be quarantined or isolated or may order a place to be closed and made off limits to the public on an immediate basis without prior consent or court order if, in the reasonable judgment of the Department, immediate action is required to protect the public from a dangerously contagious or infectious disease. In the event of an immediate order issued without prior consent or court order, the Department shall, as soon as practical, within 48 hours after issuing the order, obtain the consent of the person or owner or file a petition requesting a court order authorizing the isolation or quarantine or closure. When exigent circumstances exist that cause the court system to be unavailable or that make it impossible to obtain consent or file a petition within 48 hours after issuance of an immediate order, the Department must obtain consent or file a petition requesting a court order as soon as reasonably possible. To obtain a court order, the Department, by clear and convincing evidence, must prove that the public's health and welfare are significantly endangered by a person or group of persons that has, that is suspected of having, that has been exposed to, or that is reasonably believed to have been exposed to a dangerously contagious or infectious disease including non-compliant tuberculosis patients or by a place where there is a significant amount of activity likely to spread a dangerously contagious or infectious disease. The Department must also prove that all other reasonable means of correcting the problem have been exhausted and no less restrictive alternative exists. For purposes of this subsection, in determining whether no less restrictive alternative exists, the court shall consider evidence showing that, under the circumstances presented by the case in which an order is sought, quarantine or isolation is the measure provided for in a rule of the Department or in guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the World Health Organization. Persons who are or are about to be ordered to be isolated or quarantined and owners of places that are or are about to be closed and made off limits to the public shall have the right to counsel. If a person or owner is indigent, the court shall appoint counsel for that person or owner. Persons who are ordered to be isolated or quarantined or who are owners of places that are ordered to be closed and made off limits to the public, shall be given a written notice of such order. The written notice shall additionally include the following: (1) notice of the right to counsel; (2) notice that if the person or owner is indigent, the court will appoint counsel for that person or owner; (3) notice of the reason for the order for isolation, quarantine, or closure; (4) notice of whether the order is an immediate order, and if so, the time frame for the Department to seek consent or to file a petition requesting a court order as set out in this subsection; and (5) notice of the anticipated duration of the isolation, quarantine, or closure.

The General Assembly shall from time to time make appropriations to the Department of Public Health for distribution to multiple-county and consolidated health departments. Such appropriations shall be distributed to health departments for municipality contributions to the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund. Distribution shall be made to those health departments, which have no other funds available for payment of municipality contributions, and have certified the amount needed to each county in the health department and one or more of the counties is at a county tax rate of 75¢ per $100 of equalized valuation for the year for which the contributions are required. The amount distributed shall be equal to the amount which the county or counties would have been required to contribute to the health department for municipality contributions of the health department if their county tax rate was less than 75¢ per $100 equalized valuation.
