(WSIL) -- As the state of Illinois moves into phase three of its recovery plan Governor JB Pritzker announced some big changes.

He's no longer going to hold daily press briefings during the week on COVID-19. Instead he'll pass along updates as needed.

The governor is also ending Illinois' "Stay at Home" executive order and replacing it with the new "Community Recovery" order.

During Friday's final COVID-19 press conference the Illinois Department of Public Health announced 1,622 new cases of COVID-19 and 86 additional deaths.
