COVID-19 Updates

An increase in case rates and test positivity from October 4–October 10 have led to the change to an orange ‘Warning’ designation for McHenry County. During the week of October 4-October 10, test positivity increased to 8.6% from 6.9% the previous week, according to IDPH. Test positivity indicates a warning when the 7-day test positivity rate rises above 8%. “We are seeing cases among residents aged 45-79 increasing at a faster rate than other groups,” said Public Health Administrator Melissa Adamson. “As families and friends begin to plan holiday get-togethers, we need to remain vigilant and continue to wear a mask and limit our close contact with anyone who lives outside our home, even if that individual is a relative.”

So, please, keep practicing the 3 Ws: Watch your distance, wear a mask properly (covering your mouth AND nose) and wash your hands frequently.

A map and information of the status of every Illinois county can be found on the IDPH website here. View a map of the United States and other countries to view potential risks associated with traveling. Areas with increased risk of COVID-19 are based on case rates.
