COVID-19 Update

DuPage County is now at high risk levels with 11.4 new COVID-19 admissions per 100,000 people. Will County is listed as medium risk with 7.5 admissions per 100,000. There have been 323 new cases in Naperville over the past seven days. As of last week, about 72% of cases in the Midwest were either the BA.5 or BA.4 strain, according to CDC data, which groups Illinois with Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota. The B.5 strain has emerged as the dominant one and appears to evade immune protection from vaccines prior infections more easily than past variants. The vaccines still remain effective in largely preventing hospitalizations and death, doctors say.
