    Still no Scott County


  2. - lake county democrat - Monday, Jun 29, 20 @ 2:59 pm:

    With the regular caveat about Monday numbers, the stable positivity rate is encouraging. Need to keep pounding the message and enforcing the phase 4 restrictions.


  3. - Lil Squeezy - Monday, Jun 29, 20 @ 3:02 pm:

    Will the disaster proclamation be extended today?


  4. - Juice - Monday, Jun 29, 20 @ 3:09 pm:

    Lil Squeezy, it was extended on Friday.


  5. - Terry Salad - Monday, Jun 29, 20 @ 3:19 pm:

    R) and positivity rates looking good. Bit of an uptick in new cases but within range. Hope the Wrigleyville bar crowds don’t mess things up.

    =Hope the Wrigleyville bar crowds don’t mess things up.=

    Sorry, but they probably will.
    Outdoor dining, six feet apart is a stretch.
    Indoor drinking/dining is just asking for trouble.


  7. - Montrose - Monday, Jun 29, 20 @ 4:04 pm:

    After being in Wisconsin this weekend, I have renewed appreciate for our indoor face mask order. It is spotty up there at best. Here’s hoping we don’t mess this up.


  8. - Downstate Illinois - Monday, Jun 29, 20 @ 4:43 pm:

    I really wish IDPH would track active cases. Telling us how many people have been infected over the last six months is a useless metric. I want to know how many people have it in my community now.


  9. - Mugwump - Monday, Jun 29, 20 @ 4:53 pm:

    Agree with Downstate Illinois. The Sangamon County DPH web site https://scdph.org lists the number of recovered cases (defined as someone who tested positive more than 42 days ago and is not dead) allowing for this calculation: Positive tests 405 minus 33 dead minus 329 recovered = 43 active cases.


  10. - Mugwump - Monday, Jun 29, 20 @ 5:06 pm:

    The IDPH site

    http://www.dph.illinois.gov/topics-services/diseases-and-conditions/diseases-a-z-list/coronavirus

    says 142,461 confirmed cases, 6,902 deaths and a recovery rate of 94%. So, (142,461 minus 6,902) X 6% = 8,134 active cases?

    It says that the “Recovery rate is calculated as the recovered cases divided by the sum of recovered cases and deceased cases.” Which I don’t think makes sense. Does it?


  11. - Mugwump (again) - Monday, Jun 29, 20 @ 5:13 pm:

    https://www.c-uphd.org/champaign-urbana-illinois-coronavirus-information.html

    Champaign County does the calculation. 100 active cases.


  12. - The Dude - Tuesday, Jun 30, 20 @ 6:48 am:

    I have a strong feeling that were going to be regretting the expansion to phase 4 in about 1 month.

    The writing is on the wall and face mask use has become pathetic. Everyone had one job and failed it.


  13. - Skeptic - Tuesday, Jun 30, 20 @ 8:53 am:

    “Which I don’t think makes sense. Does it?”
    Yes, it does. It’s the ratio of people confirmed positive who haven’t died to the total number of people confirmed positive.
