Governor JB Pritzker has approved a new deal on providing COVID-19 sick leave for teachers that requires school staff be vaccinated for benefits. On Monday, Pritzker had vetoed a previous version of the bill that would have required teachers be tested regularly instead of being vaccinated. Lawmakers must decide on the proposal when they return to the state capitol next week.
