*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 deaths previously reported has changed, therefore, today’s numbers have been adjusted. For health questions about COVID-19, call the hotline at 1-800-889-3931 or email dph.sick@illinois.gov.

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) today announced Region 8 (DuPage and Kane) and Region 9 (Lake and McHenry) are moving to Tier 1 effective today. Information about which tier and phase regions are in can be found at the top of the IDPH website homepage.

    I find it difficult to process what is ultimately good news without feeling the shadow of the impending other shoe.

    I hope there isn’t another shoe.

    We are doing better. I hope, though, that folks don’t let down their guard (or their masks).

    Tier 1 for region 8 is great news.

    There is nothing more important than getting first doses into as many people as possible.
    Who has the governor put in charge of effort?
    Dr. Ezike has her hands full with all of the covid issues. This is logistics and organizational bulldozing as much as medicine.

    This is `where are the doses, and why [redacted] are they still not in people?’

    Students left Champaign about 2 months ago. COVID levels took a month to peak, and have been dropping ever since. Students have now returned, and there were lines out the door at several campus bars on Saturday night. New cases are cooking right now. I’m so sick of this merry go round. Doesn’t anyone else see the problem?
