*All data are provisional and will change. In order to rapidly report COVID-19 information to the public, data are being reported in real-time. Information is constantly being entered into an electronic system and the number of cases and deaths can change as additional information is gathered. Information for a death previously reported has changed, therefore, today’s numbers have been adjusted.

    I’m pretty sure that’s all bad news…coming.


  2. - Mama - Tuesday, Nov 17, 20 @ 12:32 pm:

    I’m happy to see more people are starting to take COVID-19 seriously to bring the numbers down and save their favorite bars, restaurants, etc..

    =Good news: 10 of out Illinois’ 11 regions are recording a 7-day avg positivity rate either lower than or the same as the day before as of Nov. 14=

    Looks like Tier 2 mitigations are working in region 8


  4. - The Dude - Tuesday, Nov 17, 20 @ 12:50 pm:

    All bad news. We have a decent case load going into Thanksgiving which will create another spike just like it did in Canada.

    Were done because of JB’s failure to shut the state down. We needed at best to do it 14 days before Thanksgiving so we could have mitigated the spike.

    Each day going on that governor allows doesn’t close state is going to make Thanksgiving and then Christmas worse.

    Close the state. Nobody should be working right now unless actually essential.


  5. - Bob Loblaw - Tuesday, Nov 17, 20 @ 12:53 pm:

    Dude,
    Who do you envision actually doing the work of closing the state? My county for example says they aren’t abiding the governor, won’t enforce his directives, same for the state’s attorney’s office and the police. Both my state senator and state house reps have written strongly worded letters to him saying we need to stay open.

    Unless there’s some enforcement mechanism, declaring a shutdown is a lot like Michael Scott declaring bankruptcy, and only further erodes whatever credibility remains


  6. - The Dude - Tuesday, Nov 17, 20 @ 1:00 pm:

    Part of the reason so many people can claim they won’t follow the rules are because the govenor hasn’t taken a hard stand against them.

    The govenor has many cards he hasn’t yet played for all public sector employees who are not following the executive action. He simply isn’t as much of a leader he claims he is to play them. He is playing too nice to these morons.


  7. - Jeff S. - Tuesday, Nov 17, 20 @ 1:01 pm:

    But what will people do if they can’t get their Amazon packages delivered if we shut down all non essentials?

    What constitutes a probable case of covid exactly? How many are confirmed vs probable? If I’ve eaten at Applebee’s in Missouri do I consider myself a probable case?


  8. - illinifan - Tuesday, Nov 17, 20 @ 1:02 pm:

    Too many mayors in Region 7 refuse to enforce mitigation. This is the wrong way to be top in the state. Our hospitals should have every mayor working in the ER and COVID floors to help with the increased infection.


  9. - The Dude - Tuesday, Nov 17, 20 @ 1:14 pm:

    Bob Loblaw

    Part of the reason the ignorant in your county think they can get away with not enforcing the restrictions is because of the govenors failure to lead in recent weeks.

    The govenor has a few cards that he could play that haven’t been discussed here but he is holding back thinking these ignorant people will comply.

    It isnt working. The govenor needs to use authority and step in like a leader and shut this down. It starts with his own house(state employees who are not essential) and goes from there.

    People in your county likely have no idea what’s coming if they keep acting like it isnt a big deal.


  10. - Bob Loblaw - Tuesday, Nov 17, 20 @ 1:18 pm:

    Yea I mean if he’s holding cards that can somehow reverse the trend of like half the state just completely ignoring him, he should play those cards, but he’s going to need a lot of help doing the practical part of that work, whatever it is, and I’m just not sure who those people are in the vast expanses of the state below i80


  11. - Amalia - Tuesday, Nov 17, 20 @ 2:15 pm:

    Used to look at these death reports and count the number of people at and above my age group to warn me. Now I look and see that the level of death in Cook County is lower percentage wise than elsewhere, and not even close. And that pains me for the entire state of Illinois. Wear a mask, all of Illinois.

    Restrictions on capacity in grocery stores? Has he lost his mind? In the winter?


  13. - Six Degrees of Separation - Tuesday, Nov 17, 20 @ 4:57 pm:

    ===Restrictions on capacity in grocery stores?===

    Our local grocery stores have had a capacity limit for several months and never were in danger of exceeding it. Unless everyone shows up at once to make a run on the TP, I doubt if this will have much of an effect. The local Super Wal Mart can have 900 people in the store at 20% capacity.

    === Looks like Tier 2 mitigations are working in region 8 ===

    Wrong.

    Tier 2 jusr went into effect in the middle of last week, which wont start impacting test results until next week.

    What we are seeing is the Tier 1 mitigations finally starting to take effect.
